PayU India enters strategic tie up with IndusInd Bank

payIndusInd Bank and online payment company Payu India entered into a strategic partnership too joint solutions.

“The partnership is aimed at bridging the gap between conventional banking world and the new age online payment systems,” the private sector bank said.

It will help bring the full suite of consumer banking products online, it added.

“The Online Payment and Banking sectors are going through a transition phase across the world,” said Shailaz Nag, COO and Co-founder, Payu India.

“In India, where the demography makes it even more challenging, the transition is at many layers. Indian consumers have accepted online payment systems and seamless modes of online payment like mobile wallet, with open arms.

“However the trust they have on the Indian Banking system in the past few decades, still remains unmatched. With this partnership, we are bringing the cutting edge online payments technology and a bouquet of conventional banking services together for one of its kind in the history of Digital Banking.”

The Indian payments processing industry has taken off in a big way over the last two years, with lots of start-ups. Many big banks too have started their own payments processing services and platforms, leading to consolidation in the industry. Smaller banks, meanwhile, have tied up with one of the existing independent platforms.

PayU India claims to be the No.1 payment aggregator in the Indian e-commerce category and counts outlets like Goibibo, Snapdeal, Bookmyshow, Jabong, Ferns n Petals, Freecharge, Zomato, Tradus, Rechargeitnow and Groupon India among its clients.
