    Happy for Flipkart, but in reality it’s failure on part of eBay in India

    Yesterday, Flipkart finally announced that it was acquiring eBay India. Through my early years of online shopping, there was just one credible name in India, and that was eBay. Along with me, quite a few of my friends seemed to trust eBay more than Baazee. In 2004, eBay acquired Baazee and eBay India was born. In the true sense, e-commerce in India was born. More →

    WhatsApp to enable digital payments in India: After Truecaller, WhatsApp UPI integration on the cards

    Ever since the Indian government's decision to demonetize the economy by withdrawing higher denomination currency notes, Indians has been through a rather topsy turvy journey. On one hand there were calls to weed out black money. On the other, there was a firm call to adapt digital modes of transactions. It’s interesting though, because what was once a cash driven economy is rising up to the cause. We now have well over a dozen modes of transactions.
