India: eCommerce Benefit of B2B Payment Solutions
ECommerce is responsible for up to 40% market penetration for certain segments of international trade, and is a key driver in the future of India's success in commerce worldwide. The integration of B2B payment solutions in global commerce has increased the opportunities for export trade. In spite of risks associated with inventory loss, data theft, and transaction fraud, the influx in eCommerce demand by customers abroad has promoted the development of new enterprise solutions in the payment gateway segment of the financial services market. With these new payment systems, risk in cross-border payments is virtually eliminated. Smarter, faster, and safer than ever before, B2B payment solutions are the answer to the continued proliferation of global eCommerce as a significant force in export trade performance.
Virtual B2B payment solutions enable enterprises to verify credit card authorization on all EFTs by way of a secure terminal network. The most popular credit card payment mechanism on the market, B2B payment solutions allow customers to pay with an internationally recognized credit card. Most web based B2B payment solution providers accept major credit cards such as American Express®, Carte Blanch®, Diner's Club®, Discover, JCB Cards, MasterCard® and Visa® on their networks. Some B2B payment solutions also support transactions via secured bank account card debit PIN, cheque, and gift card payment.
Fast-forward Mobile Payment Gateway
Providers of B2B payment solutions supported by Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) or by dial-up connection can also benefit from mobile payment gateway access to customers. With the integration of mobile app payment gateways, customers can order and pay on their smartphone, or other device from any location via credit card or other approved payment source. Merchants with a registered mobile payment terminal can also accept payment over a bank switch, IVR, SMS, USSD and WAP/GPRS services and IMPS (Instant Mobile Payment Services) financial transfers.
Mobile commerce features in B2B payment solutions enable eCommerce sites to accept payments from a mobile wallet. Mobile banking solutions may also include other services such as bank account balance query, foreign currency funds transfer, stop cheque payment, statement enquiry, rewards points system tracking, transaction status reporting, and bank locator services.
B2B trade credit
In general, importers pay for goods long after the money is needed to produce them. There could be as much as six months between the point where the goods are produced and the moment the payment is on the exporter's bank account. That's why B2B trade credit is becoming more and more popular. Letters of Credit, Bills of Exchange and other forms of credit that increases the liquidity for exporters allow companies to grow, which is good for global GDP.
