Updates to regulations on recurring card payments in India
Wednesday, September 29, 2021
This is a notice for customers located in India only
In April 2021, issuing banks in India began taking steps to block transactions that don’t comply with the Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI) directive on the processing recurring transactions. This regulation affects all customers paying for email services, domains, and hosting with credit and debit cards that are based in India.
As we approach the September 30th, 2021, deadline, our developers and our payment processing partners (Stripe/Square) are working on solutions to help meet these new requirements. We are working to release a new set of AFA compliant APIs to integrate with later this year.
In the meantime, here are some solutions to implement in the meantime to avoid your services becoming suspended.
- Make a one-time payment by paying all invoices manually.
- Make a payment with Bitcoin or other cyrpto-currencies.
- Contact us to set up a PayPal subscription payment.
- Contact us to make a one-time balance payment to have a credits within our system.
Thank you for your understanding and continued business with us. We really do appreciate it.
