1 min. read

San Francisco, June 27, 2017 —dLocal, an award-winning fintech company that specializes in cross-border payments for emerging markets, announced today that it has launched Marketplace Payments, a new payments product designed specifically for marketplaces whose buyers or sellers are based in emerging markets. DealeXtreme and LightInTheBox are the first two global marketplace companies to add dLocal’s new plug-and-play solution to their payments suite, enabling them to easily accept all the local payment methods in Latin America with just one click.

With dLocal’s Marketplace Payments, companies can easily enable their sellers to expand their reach into high-growth emerging markets in Latin America where ecommerce and mcommerce usage is on the rise, but penetration of international credit cards is low. With just one click, marketplace sellers can add over 200 locally relevant payment methods into their check-out flows and immediately start selling online to local customers.

“Payments in emerging markets are fragmented and complex, and large marketplaces that sell online services face challenges providing a simple, yet comprehensive payment solution to their sellers,” said Sebastian Kanovich, CEO of dLocal. “We aim to make mass payments in emerging markets a better process, and are excited to continue making ecommerce a truly global experience by leveling the playing field for consumers and businesses in emerging markets.”

dLocal’s Marketplace Payments is a PCI DSS compliant, API-based solution. It covers Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Mexico, Peru, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey and Uruguay, and supports all country-specific payment methods, including local credit and debit cards, bank transfers, and cash payments. Additional countries will be added in the future. To learn more about dLocal’s Marketplace Payments, email marketing@dlocal.com.
