The National Conference on Digital Commerce organized the Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI) on 27th November 2009 took place at the InterContinental Eros in New Delhi. The conference examined strategies on how to build ecommerce in India, whether ecommerce was driving value for the customer today. It also looked at the progress of Indian brands and manufacturers in tapping ecommerce to enhance distribution and how the development of electronic and mobile payment channels can enhance digital commerce.
One of the key speakers at the event was Mr. Vivek Nayak, COO, Avenues India, who spoke about the role of a strong payment gateway in the development of ecommerce. He touched upon the fact that many merchants after investing large sums of money and hard work in developing their brand websites fail to capitalize on the traffic and lose the opportunity to close sales at the website itself by simply not bothering to add a real time payment gateway. By losing out on the opportunity to close sales instantly, they are left with an expensive showpiece rather than a profit-generating website.
Mr. Nayak also elaborated on the basic requirements of a good payment gateway partner. One that will help the merchant not only to accept payments from a wider audience but also help the merchant expand his business by providing a range of transaction enhancing tools, protect him from fraud and transaction risks.
