Previous news from PPRO

In April 2023, PPRO has partnered with NPCI International Payments Limited (NIPL) to provide global partners with access to India's Unified Payments Interface (UPI) for cross-border transactions. This collaboration aims to simplify and enhance efficiency for international payment service providers and merchants seeking to sell into India at scale.

The direct connection to UPI through PPRO's digital payments infrastructure allows merchants to reach India's extensive online consumer base securely, without the need for a legal entity in India or settlement to an India-based bank. This facilitates cross-border purchases in Indian Rupees for consumers, leveraging their preferred payment methods.

UPI, launched in 2016, is a popular instant payment system in India, processing a significant portion of domestic payments with over 325 million active users and 8.7 billion transactions in March 2023 alone.
