New Delhi, Jul 10 (PTI) Indian e-commerce major Flipkart on Wednesday said it has partnered with payment solutions company BillDesk to expand its digital payment offerings with five new categories.

The expansion includes recharge and bill payment categories, including FasTag, DTH recharges, landline, broadband, and mobile postpaid bill payments, on the Flipkart app.

The home-grown marketplace has partnered with BillDesk to help integrate the new services with Bharat Bill Payments System (BBPS), developed by the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI).

The new services are in addition to the existing electricity bill payment and mobile prepaid recharge options.

"We have diversified our selection of services in line with Flipkart's vision to simplify the digital payments journey for customers and further the government's vision of a cashless economy.

"From buying their favourite products to addressing digital payment requirements, this enhancement has created a one-stop destination for customers to fulfill all their needs anytime, anywhere in a secure and seamless manner," said Gaurav Arora, Vice President, Payments and SuperCoins, at Flipkart.

In March this year, the Bengaluru-based firm in a partnership with Axis Bank launched its UPI handle @fkaxis for online and offline merchant transactions within and outside of the Flipkart marketplace. PTI ANK HVA
