MN-based Digital River is raising the stakes in India through a strategic partnership with local ecommerce provider Net Distribution Services (NDS). NDS has been building and operating branded online stores for both global enterprises as well as leading local brands for more than five years.
The partnership, which combines the power of Digital River’s Global Commerce platform with NDS’ reseller services and local e-commerce expertise, will enable global merchants to offer preferred payment methods and local customer support services for branded online stores dedicated to the sale of products in India.
Digital River says in combination with NDS, we can now offer merchants a local alternative to online marketplaces in India, a market known for complex e-commerce regulations. DR’s direct-to-commerce solution enables NDS to develop a local store presence while maintaining control over their marketing, pricing and partner strategies, and creating a best-in-class online experience for shoppers in India.
In 2013, Digital River processed more than $30 billion in online transactions, connecting B2B and B2C digital products and cloud service companies, as well as branded manufacturers with buyers across multiple devices and channels, and nearly every country in the world.
