One of the major issues faced in building cryptocurrencies acceptance in mainstream, day-to-day payment is the secure nature of blockchain only. All the decentralized tokens and coins are developed by keeping in mind the security as number one priority. From this, we can say that unless and until a wallet holder starts a payment, a transfer will not happen.
This simply means that the service provider can't perform automatic, recurring payments like monthly fee or subscriptions. Each and every time, payment is possible when the sender initiates the transaction manually. Thus, services which follow monthly payments, crypto is not an option. For example, Netflix.
What is PumaPay's Payment Protocol?
PumaPay is mainly a decentralized payment system for merchants. It is focused to provide users the ability to perform day-to-day payments with flexibility over blockchain. To acquire this, the platform has developed its PullPayment Protocol which works almost similar to a credit or debit card payment. Thus service users like subscribing to a magazine or a monthly premium access can utilize the Pull Protocol to allow usual crypto payments to the service provider, without any requirement of performing transactions manually.
The PullPayment service will be helpful to both the parties. The provider is guaranteed that the payments will be directly transferred to their wallets on the mentioned time. The service provider is then protected from any of delays or fraud. The user will also be able to enjoy services regularly.
The suggestions of the protocol are not clear. For monthly subscription or pay per view or pay per time, all the things should be designed as per the requirement of the industry. Lastly, the protocol consists of a unique smart contract which enables reverse billing methodology which enables merchants to take funds from the user's wallets.
