Buying products at the Central Cottage Industries Emporium has been made easy with e-payment facility offered by leading electronic payment firm TechProcess Payment Services.
The two — TechProcess Payment Services Ltd and the Central Cottage Industries Emporium, a government of India undertaking, Ministry of Textiles, the single largest emporium for authentichandloom and handicraft products, have joined hands to enable digital payments.
Speaking about the partnership, Kumar Karpe, Chief Executive Officer, TechProcess Payment Services Ltd., said: “Globally, Indian handicraft products are extremely popular and are collected by enthusiasts across the length and breadth of our country.
“We are glad that our association will enable customers to experience our convenient online payment platform and buy the products with ease. Our association is aligned with the government’s initiative of ‘Digital India’ and will help enhance consumer’s digital payment experience.”
The emporium, which promotes handicrafts and handlooms on various platforms and sells products created by Indian artists, has been selling artefacts only through cash, credit card, cheque and bank transfer for which customers had to visit their Delhi showroom or select the product on the website and order it offline, an official communiqué said.
The tedious process of viewing the products online and then buying them offline usually resulted into procrastination and in most of the cases loss of buyer’s interest, thereby causing loss of sales.
With e-payments now enabled, it is hoped to enhance the overall customer experience by providing the option of purchasing the products online with ease and help the weavers and artists to get the right price to their products.
TechProcess, the country’s leading electronic payments firm and a recipient of in-principle approval of Bharat Bill Payments Operating Unit, has a simple vision to offer anytime, anywhere payments to all.
