PayMate offers a full suite of services and solutions for consumers to make payments and transfers, for businesses to accept payments and make business-to-business payments. PayMate solutions cater to both urban and rural users and aim to reduce friction in payments by keeping them simple and convenient, without compromising security or compliance.
PayMate has been experiencing double-digit, month-on-month, growth in its processing business. Its B2B e-payments business has been especially strong. PayMate has also been working closely with National Bank of Agriculture and Rural Development of India (NABARD), to promote greater and easy use of Kisan Credit Cards (KCC) by enabling mobile access of KCC. Now farmers can make payments using their mobile phones and rural merchants can accept payments using their mobile phones.
In a recently published report by Hamburg based market research company yStats.com, it was stated that the Indian online payments market is expected to grow 20+% annually over the next few years*. PayMate’s achievement is further evidence of the growing momentum in the India e-payments market and confirms its market leading position to exploit future growth.
