payment gateways, IndiaIndia is slowly but surely paving its way to a cashless society. The rise in digitalisation, modern technology and the easy availability of mobile devices has transformed the way the payment gateway industry is growing. This has given rise to several mobile wallets or e-wallets. There are various types of mobile wallets in India, such as open, semi-open, semi-closed and closed – depending on the type of usage and payments that can be made.

The use of digital wallets is growing rapidly as they help in increasing the speed of transactions, for e-commerce companies and all online marketplaces have integrated with such mobile wallets to make transactions seamless. With the launch of UPI, it has become even easier, as the transfer happens directly from the bank account rather than from a wallet.
