4th July, 2019
With the objective of further augmenting the revenue stream of Indian web businesses, has now included the net banking mode of Equitas Small Finance Bank (SFB) in its comprehensive platform. With this addition, CCAvenue now has a huge list of 59+ banking partners in its direct debit engine which is currently the largest in South Asia.

This fresh initiative throws open a window of opportunity for 1,20,000+ Indian websites powered by CCAvenue as they can now reach out to the mammoth, rapidly growing customer base of Equitas SFB. When shopping on these eCommerce websites, the bank's customers will now be able to make secure and convenient payments for their purchases through an instant debit in their bank account.

Equitas Small Finance Bank is a Small Finance Bank (SFB), licensed by Reserve Bank of India under Section 22 of the Banking Regulation Act, 1949 to operate as a Small Finance Bank. The Bank initially started its business on September 5, 2016. It then became the first Private Sector Bank from Tamil Nadu to commence operations post India's Independence. The bank now has a pan India network focused on providing financing solutions for individuals and micro and small enterprises (MSEs) which are as yet underserved by formal financing channels while providing a vast banking and digital platform for everyone. As a small finance bank, Equitas is changing the way banking is imagined, delivered and experienced - with 'Trust' being the key driver.

Commenting on this move, Mr. Vishwas Patel, Founder of CCAvenue and Executive Director of Infibeam Avenues, stated: "CCAvenue has expanded our partnership ecosystem exponentially in the past few years, as we provide our merchant partners with quick and easy access to the latest payment technologies as well as our comprehensive payment portfolio. With the inclusion of Equitas Small Finance Bank's net banking facility on our payment platform, our merchants can now maximise their earnings by tapping into this whole new customer segment."
