Speaking on the occasion of the launch, Mr. Ravi Jagannathan, Director of Y-Cash Software Solutions commented, “Our target is to enroll small and mid-sized merchants who typically do not use credit/ debit card payment system. The merchant enrollment program which commenced in 7 cities in Tamil Nadu from Oct 3, 2012 has seen very good acceptance amongst retailers with more than 3000 merchants already signed up to accept YPayCash due to the twin benefit of lower cost and ease of use. Our partnership with Karur Vysya Bank would further strengthen our reach to the market and help position YPayCash as the non-cash instrument of choice for retailers in Tamil Nadu and neighboring states.”

With this launch, we are not only introducing an innovative and unique technology solution to our customers but also bringing in a disruptive business model that would bring a paradigm shift in the payment ecosystem.
