“Snapdeal is focused on maximising savings for value-savvy buyers each time they buy on the platform. This partnership will add mutual value, while also enhancing benefits to RuPay and Snapdeal users,” says Snapdeal spokesperson.
These markets are also seeing steady growth in acceptance for digital payments solutions. RuPay has a strong penetration of cards, especially in non-metros, offering consumers diverse payment options including UPI, credit and debit cards. The cards issued under Jan Dhan Yojana, also have RuPay powered cards.
This partnership plays upon the complementary strengths of both Snapdeal & RuPay, with a very strong alignment towards a common target audience. For RuPay, this presents an opportunity to increase card usage in a meaningful way, by offering an incentive each time the user makes an online transaction on Snapdeal. Snapdeal’s value-savvy buyers get an opportunity to save Rs 150 per card in the festive season and with many households having multiple RuPay cards, the savings get multiplied. No minimum transaction is required for users to avail discounts on RuPay.
Snapdeal has a wide array of payment options available at the platform, which includes credit and debit cards, EMI, net banking, e-gift cards, e-wallets etc. The company has a large and exciting line-up of payment offers for the festive season. Last year, it partnered 13 international, national and regional banks, and 3 digital wallets to offer nearly Rs 100 crore worth of discounts to users who opted for digital payments for their purchases on the platform.
Apart from the main private-sector and public-sector banks, RuPay cards are also issued by cooperative banks (scheduled cooperative banks, district cooperative banks, state cooperative banks, urban cooperative banks) and regional rural banks (RRBs) in the country.
