We are the citizens of 21st century- the age of knowledge, technology and aspiration. And standing in such an exclusive age, our everyday lives are intertwined with a multitude of technologies which we have at our disposal, for our own convenience. Our world has changed rapidly in the past few years. Just in over a decade, everything has metamorphosed into a better tomorrow. And in this transition technology played a very important role, rather the most pivotal role. Today in our daily lives, we get everything at an arm?s distance. And mundane chores of yesteryears such as Shopping and banking have been easy to such an extent that labeling them merely as child?s play won?t suffice. Now behind all such transition, there are several pieces of the pie which have come together to achieve this wonder. And one of them is a rectangular piece of plastic, the credit card. Credit cards have not only dramatically eased our problems regarding monetary transactions, but along with it they have opened up altogether a new world for Shopping and other allied commercial ventures. Just imagine the situation before the advent of this rectangular piece of plastic; recall the situation at the banking sector. Nearly an entire day was wasted, standing and filing complex paper works just to withdraw your very own hard earned money! Thankfully today we don?t have to endure such plight and hardship, our accounts are accessible from anywhere around the world. This ease of transaction opened up a thousand opportunities for the sellers and merchants, and very soon credit card paired with another potent tool of today- the e-commerce and history was created.
Not only the e-commerce selling junctions, but the digital boom affected the traditional setups and stores as well. As the popularity of credit cards grew, banking giants were compelled to issue and expand their services to an ever growing number of happy and eager customers. And in this juncture the best minds of business came together and devised a plan to capture the market with just a pat! These banks began to tie up with the selling junctures and service providers. Understandings were made in such a way that it became a win-win situation for both the financers and the sellers. The tie-ups came into formation in such a manner that the customers or the end users began to get guaranteed offers on cash backs, discounts and other benefits. The e-commerce boom sustained riding on these agreements. For example Shopping from an e-commerce setup digitally would guarantee a cashback, or a lavish discount, which is unavailable if you buy using hard cash. And this boom in a very short amount of time consumed the entire globe and even in developing countries such as India began to experience this phenomenon. The newly emerging cities such as Pune are growing on top of this digital Shopping boom. In order to enjoy all the nuances of the city life, one definitely have to subscribe to the new way of life.
