The bank has thus launched the ‘Merchant Stack’, which most importantly offers a range of ‘contactless’ banking services, providing safety to merchants and their customers alike, he added.

Retail merchants can avail of these contactless services, without visiting the bank’s branches, at a time when people are advised to stay home and maintain social distancing. They can avail of these facilities instantly, on InstaBIZ, the bank’s mobile banking application for businesses. The lender also aims to provide value-added services like alliances with major e-commerce and digital marketing platforms for expansion of online
