Call it tech-celeration. Or just necessity being the habitual mother of invention. But, every time our world experiences a momentous change, there almost always emerges an unlikely winner. 

For example, Covid-19 pushed online shopping to grow so fast in 2020, analysts at McKinsey called it “The Quickening”. Their report estimated that the market saw 10 years’ worth of growth in just the first three months of the pandemic. This was amazing for the global economy, but it did nothing for businesses that didn’t have an online presence.

That’s when most offline Indian small businesses began to leverage digital technologies. Razorpay championed their cause by helping them accept and make millions of digital transactions to grow their revenues. In the last 15 months, over 1.5 million SMEs have chosen Razorpay as their payments partner. 

To take that effort further, Razorpay is extending its payment solutions to empower MSMEs who want to build, grow and scale their online store with Bluehost’s newly launched eCommerce suite.  A crucial part of providing your customers with a great online shopping experience is to ensure they enjoy safe, hassle-free and secure payments. With a payment partner like Razorpay, your online customers get the convenience to transact with you in more than 100 modes (including Credit & Debit cards, Netbanking, UPI, Wallet, EMI & Pay Later).
