ICICI Bank launched today the ‘Merchant Stack’ digital platform, a set of digital banking services for retail merchants. The platform enables merchants to meet their banking requirements seamlessly ensuring smooth functioning amid the pandemic.
The initiative will allow merchants to avail services without visiting the bank’s branches via InstaBIZ, the bank’s mobile banking application for businesses.
“We always believe that the self-employed and the MSME segment forms the backbone of the Indian economy. There are over 2 crore merchants in the country with approximately $ 780 billion in value of transactions in 2020…‘Merchant Stack’ offers a range of ‘contactless’ banking services, providing safety to the merchants and their customers alike. This new offering is part of our guiding principle of ‘Business with Care’. It is also a continuation of ‘ICICI Stack’ which we launched a year ago to offer retail customers all digital banking services from one platform,” said Anup Bagchi, of ICICI Bank.
