About Us

WHO ARE WE?

Pay1 is a digital network of manufacturers, distributors and retailers. India is a country of farmers and traders. These two sectors are the pillars of the Indian economy. Pay1 has taken the lead to transform and empower the trade sector. Acting as a catalyst, Pay1 aims to provide the trade community with new opportunities for growth using innovative solutions, technology and content.
With this vision in mind, Pay1 has created a unique digital network of manufacturers, distributors, and retailers with the objective of achieving a sustainable and prosperous economy.

WHAT WE DO

Pay1 mission is to transform and empower the trade community. The trade community consists of micro entrepreneurs with tremendous potential for growth. They are mainly the unorganized retail sector – your corner mom & pop store, the local convenience (kirana) shop…this unorganized retail sector constitutes 97% of the total retail sector in India.
Increasing disposable incomes, urbanisation and attitudinal shifts are contributing to increased footfalls in the unorganized retail sector. It however still remains shackled due to inefficient supply-chain management issues. Coupled with absence of proper infrastructure and distribution channel and no market research to guide manufacturers and distributors, the unorganized retail sector falls short in its growth and potential vis-à- vis the organized retail sector (for example, online retail). Therefore, the growth of this unorganized retailer community especially, women micro entrepreneurs; translates into growth for the entire ecosystem, right from manufacturers to consumers, ultimately leading to employment generation. We believe it is this employment generation that will fuel India’s growth. The Pay1 vision rests on this very fundamental belief and truth. The digital platform and network created by Pay1 plays a crucial role in the overall economic growth of India.

HOW DO WE DO IT

By creating a digital network and platform Pay1 helps channelize goods and services which assists consumers to get what they want, where they want.
The Pay1 platform is the pivot that transforms and empowers the retailer and helps him/her become the change agent and influencer in the local community.
