CCAvenue Becomes the First Payment Aggregator to offer AU Small Finance Bank's Net Banking Facility
24th December, 2018
Close on the heels of being the first third party payment gateway to include the direct debit facilities of Suryodaya Small Finance bank and Ujjivan Small Finance bank, CCAvenue, the pioneer in the digital payments industry, is now also the first payment aggregator to go live with AU Small Finance bank's internet banking option. This move will enable 1 lakh+ merchants registered with CCAvenue to offer AU Small Finance bank's direct debit facility on their websites. With more than 56 net banking options, CCAvenue, a flagship brand of Infibeam Avenues Ltd, has the largest direct debit engine in South Asia.

AU Small Finance bank started its success story as an NBFC (Non Banking Financial Company) with the objective of serving customers in the rural and semi-urban areas. On receiving the approval from Reserve Bank of India (RBI), the bank became one of the first few entities in India to transition from an NBFC to a small finance bank. The bank aims to continue focusing on under-banked geographies by offering credit to micro-enterprises, agriculture and allied activities, as well as introducing banking services including acceptance of deposits to its portfolio. It strives to leverage its existing customer base to raise deposits and offer transaction banking.

Speaking on this development, Mr. Vishwas Patel, Director, Infibeam Avenues Ltd, commented: "The inclusion of the direct debit facility of AU Small Finance bank on our payment platform will enable our web merchants to reach out to the bank's rapidly growing customer base and enhance their business potential considerably. This integration will further consolidate our partner ecosystem and ensure that merchants do not miss out on any sales opportunities coming their way due to unavailability of payment options."

The addition of AU Small Finance bank's net banking facility will simplify online payments for the bank's customers while they transact on innumerable eCommerce sites powered by CCAvenue. As the brand continues to introduce more and more such innovative payment options in the coming months, it will only help online businesses to boost their sales and augment their revenue stream substantially.
