Montevideo, Jun 5, 2024 - dLocal, the leading cross-border payment platform, is proud to unveil the first edition of the "Emerging Markets Payments Handbook: A guide to successfully transacting with local payment methods in Africa, Asia, and Latin America." This comprehensive Handbook is curated exclusively for international companies, equipped with the insights and context necessary to expand into high-growth markets.

"As our global population surpasses 8 billion, with projections soaring to nearly 10 billion by 2050, the opportunities within emerging markets have never been more promising. In 2024, emerging and developing economies are poised to contribute 66.7% to global growth, outpacing their more developed counterparts.” says Pedro Arnt, CEO of dLocal. “However, emerging markets are extremely fragmented and over 50% of transactions are cash-based, while 80% are done via payment methods other than credit cards - those challenges, combined with regulatory hurdles can prove very daunting without considering a payments platform specializing in those markets."

Within its pages, dLocal's Emerging Markets Payments Handbook outlines the payment products, behaviors, currencies, and preferred payment methods between neighboring countries in emerging economies. The report includes the most enquired about country-specific economic and social complexities, and offers insights into the opportunities the future of digital payments will offer businesses and consumers.

dLocal’s Emerging Markets Payments Handbook is a single, comprehensive guide that touches on all aspects of the payment context in emerging markets including country-specific information that is difficult, or impossible to find elsewhere.
