Digital payments: becoming a market trend in India
The elevating demand for access to digital payments and seamless payment processing is the trend across multiple geographies, including India. With strong support from the Government, digital payments have taken an increasingly important role in India’s cash dominant economy. Digital payments, including the adoption of mobile wallets and cards, have soared in India following the demonetization exercise in November 2016. As a result, TimesofMoney has witnessed a substantial increase in transaction volumes processed in the last year.
TimesofMoney would make its presence globally
As part of Finablr, TimesofMoney is well-positioned to accelerate its growth in India. Additionally, leveraging the global presence of the Finablr network will enable TimesofMoney to expand into new markets, transforming itself from a large domestic player into an international powerhouse operating in the vanguard of the digital payments industry.
Finablr’s network of companies includes a category of renowned brands, which together handled more than 150 million transactions in 2017. The network spans 160+ countries and, with its strategy of financial enablement and empowerment, touches over a billion lives through its digital channels, retail stores, and agent locations.
