What is Local Acquiring | Solidgate

Local Acquiring


Local Acquiring refers to the process of a merchant or business establishing a relationship with an acquiring bank or payment service provider within a specific geographical region or country to accept electronic card payments. In the context of global commerce, businesses often engage with local acquiring services to optimize transaction processing, currency conversion, and compliance with regional regulations.

Local acquiring allows merchants to cater to the preferences and payment methods prevalent in a specific market, providing a more tailored and seamless payment experience for customers and offering payment options that are more convenient and familiar to their local customers. It also facilitates efficient fund settlement and reduces cross-border transaction complexities.

Local acquiring can also help merchants avoid currency conversion fees and foreign transaction fees, thus reducing their overall cost of accepting payments.
