26 million new customers for CCAvenue merchants - UCO Bank's ATM cum debit facility now live on India's largest PG
30 January, 2018
CCAvenue.com, the country's leader in online payments processing today announced an expanded strategic partnership with UCO Bank, a government-owned commercial bank, headquartered in Kolkata. The PG now offers the ATM cum Debit facility of UCO Bank on its advanced platform, further expanding its extensive payment portfolio of 200+ payment options.

Post demonetization, ATM cum Debit cards became one of the most handy and frequently used payment instruments. According to a recent report, National Financial Switch (NFS), a national-level ATM network, processes nearly 12 million card transactions in a day. Even in the online payments space, ATM cum Debit Cards offer much needed convenience and faster transaction processing to customers. They allow customers to make purchases simply by entering their regular ATM pin instead of multiple credentials or having to wait for the OTP.

With the addition of UCO Bank's ATM cum Debit facility on CCAvenue.com, web merchants registered with the PG will now have an opportunity to tap into a new segment of customers and augment their revenue stream substantially. Moreover, the inclusion will allow customers of UCO Bank to make speedy payments on all CCAvenue powered websites across various industry verticals such as online shopping, bill payments, hotel reservations, events, etc.

Commenting on the new payment option, Mr. Vishwas Patel, Chief Executive Officer at CCAvenue said: "ATM cum Debit card is a popular mode of online payment amongst customers owing to the amount of convenience and security it offers. It is similar to having cash handy without the risk of actually carrying cash. We are pleased to have UCO Bank on board with us. The new payment option will offer our merchants a pan-India customer reach and result in incremental sales for their businesses."
