Mumbai, September 15, 2015: YES BANK, India’s 5th largest private sector Bank has partnered with Snapdeal, India’s leading e-commerce player to revolutionise India’s e-commerce and payments ecosystem.
YES BANK will power the FreeCharge Digital Wallet, launched by FreeCharge, India’s leading digital platform for recharge and utility payments. This Digital Wallet will be a Co-Branded Semi Closed Loop Pre-Paid Wallet.
The ‘comprehensive and trusted’ digital wallet service will transform mobile and web transactions by facilitating easy and secure payments and be available for users across FreeCharge and Snapdeal’s e-commerce and m-commerce platforms which currently process a combined GMV of USD 4 Billion. The wallet has been built by FreeCharge and YES BANK on the pillars of cutting edge technology and state-of-the-art payments systems. With an ecosystem of 8.2 million daily unique users and 4 million monthly engaged users, the wallet is set to become India’s most used wallet in the next 6 months.
