The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) has announced the launch of ‘online business gateway’ for Indian Businesses. This new e-commerce platform will permit Indian businesses to promote their products and services, expand their boundaries and trade online, within India, across the region, and worldwide. This new e-marketplace is powered by cloudBuy, the global e-commerce solution provider.
TT Ashok, Chairman, CII National SME Council, said, “We are pleased to be able to bring this e-commerce gateway to global supply chains to CII members. They are invited to list their company, products and services and trade securely online. We have made sure that the marketplace has low transaction costs and delivers fast payments direct to sellers’ bank accounts. We believe the initiative is a simple way to increase visibility. It will provide Indian businesses with a new gateway to the world.”
The secure cloudBuy platform, who powers the CII e-marketplace, provides sophisticated e-commerce capabilities offering businesses the ability to:
- Sell products and services online
- Process inquiries, orders, invoices and payments
- Offer a secure shopping basket and checkout process
- Take payment by a variety of methods
- Upload an existing product catalogue
- Display multiple images for products and services
It’s worth mentioning that, CII members can join the e-commerce gateway and companies of all sizes can take benefit of a free listing on the CII gateway.
Lyn Duncan, CEO of cloudBuy, said, “We are delighted to be working in collaboration with CII in India to deliver the B2B marketplace infrastructure to enable secure e-commerce on the CII business gateway. Our cloudBuy teams in the UK and India are now focused on bringing as many organizations as possible onto the marketplace and making it simple for them to do business globally.”
