Being your boss

When you have your online business you have the luxury of flexible hours and being your boss. This allows you to balance work and life effectively. This business can also provide the much-needed second income option in turbulent times like now.

Cost efficient

An online business does away with the overhead costs of traditional businesses like rent, utility bills, security, and so on. Therefore, with reduced costs, you can improve the margins which will ensure more earnings.

Consumer Behaviour

Today, consumer buying preferences are not price based only; instead, convenience, online experience, and navigating through the app or website are the parameters underlying consumer behaviour. So, an online business can leverage this and thrive.

Type of account you need

As an online business owner, you need to have an account that supports your pace of growth. To know which account is best suited for you, you first need to understand the difference between savings account and current account:

A savings account is best suited for salaried employees who receive monthly inflow and have limited transactions and want to earn a nominal interest on their balances. There is no overdraft facility available on a savings account.

Current account on the other hand is best suited for entrepreneurs and traders who need to access their accounts frequently. They can avail overdraft facility which will ensure that cheques will not bounce in case of insufficient balance in the account. No interest is earned on this account.

So, a current account will be best suited for an online business owner. Axis Bank offers a range of current account variants for the distinctive needs of every business.
