Merchants with a subscription business model can now resume operations in India thanks to dLocal’s solution
Montevideo, Uruguay, November 3rd, 2021 – dLocal, a technology-first payments platform that enables global enterprise merchants to connect with billions of consumers in emerging markets, announces today the launch of a new auto-debit payment solution for subscriptions business model companies in India. The solution is now available to both local and international merchants.
The latest auto-debit regulations, which came into force last month, prevented international and local merchants from accepting most of the recurring subscription payments in India, cutting revenues for SaaS businesses and other verticals. With its new solution, dLocal deals with the complexities of compulsory e-mandate management for recurring transactions, both domestic and cross-border. Complex subscription payment flows, including variable amount ones, can now be processed seamlessly with the One dLocal concept of one API, one platform, and one contract.
“Our expertise and reach within the Indian payments ecosystem allowed us to be among the first ones to come up with a solution to overcome the hurdles international merchants face to accept subscription payments,” said Sumita Pandit, COO at dLocal.
“Our solution leverages industry-wide platforms such as UPI Autopay and SI Hub to manage e-mandates. For all subscription payments, dLocal follows all notifications to the user for safe and secure transaction processing,” added Federico Mazzoli, VP Product at dLocal.
In an effort to maximize transaction conversion rates, dLocal also empowers merchants to implement their own retry logics with no user interaction.
dLocal powers local payments in emerging markets connecting global enterprise merchants with billions of emerging market consumers across Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East. Through the “One dLocal” concept (one API, one platform, one contract), global companies can accept payments, send pay-outs, settle funds globally, and issue white label prepaid virtual and physical debit cards in local currencies, without the need to manage separate pay-in and payout processors, set up numerous local entities, and integrate multiple acquirers and payment methods in each market.
