FSS (Financial Software and Systems), provider of integrated payment products and a payments processor, today announced its collaboration with BRAC Bank, the leading bank in Bangladesh, to catalyze the growth of digital commerce in the country. This partnership will enable FSS to provide its omnichannel acquiring platform to BRAC Bank to onboard merchants and enable digital payment acceptance across multiple touchpoints - in-store, mobile and online.
According to the eCommerce Association of Bangladesh (e-Cab), digital payments over the last three years, have recorded 100 percent year-on-year growth. The e-commerce industry is expected to grow to $3 billion by 2023, driven by growing consumer preference for online and touch-free payments.

The platform supports a wide range of global and alternate regional payment methods and adapts to any channel or shopper journey.
