The recent demonetization drive by the government is moving India towards a cashless economy making inevitable for enterprises to digitize their business and accept multiple payment types including cards, mobile wallets, UPI and other cashless modes of payments. The euphoria and attention around consumer paying digitally has reached dizzying heights and estimated to reach 300 million by 2020 whereas, the non-cash payment options will surpass cash by 2023. On one hand, where the penetration of debit & credit cards and mobile wallets is quite high and smartphone users have also grown exponentially in the country, the electronic payment industry still lies in a scattered state with smaller retailers finding limited solutions at one place.
