Themes for Roadmap

There are a lot of problems to be solved in payments, but our majority of our current focus falls under 5 themes below.

🌎 Community Feature Requests: Most of our community feature requests falls under one of the above themes, but we still keep this as a separate theme, because we intend to actively explore new problem statements and themes from the community before scheduling actual feature work.

πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’» Developer Experience: Providing a great self-service and self-installation experience for developers who wish to use or contribute back to Hyperswitch.

πŸ’° Reducing Payment Costs: Payments should be like a free utility for digital businesses. Any business should be able reduce payment processing costs by embracing the diversity in payments.

πŸ“ˆ Improving Authorization Rates: Ensuring a best-in-class payment experience and access to latest innovations in the payments ecosystem for all businesses.
