Merchant of Record
As merchant of record, Digital River takes on the financial and legal responsibilities of selling online to simplify and accelerate your ability to reach new markets. One integration covers all your global payments, tax, fraud, and compliance needs. This eliminates multiple vendor contracts and integrations, reducing operational costs and simplifying your global direct-to-consumer channel.
Fast, Risk-Free Global Expansion
As merchant of record, we take on the risk and complexity of global expansion so you can grow sales like never before. International taxes, compliance, fraud prevention, and localized payment orchestration is what we do best.
Minimize Financial Complexity
Delivering localized checkout experiences and reconciling international sales can be very complex and burdensome. To simplify, Digital River provides a single checkout integration that localizes payment experiences to maximize conversions. We handle compliance, fraud mitigation, currency conversion, chargebacks, and global reconciliation all on your behalf.
Global expansion adds more risk and complexity, placing a heavy burden on your existing operations. From data privacy laws and export rules to tax compliance, no two countries are the same and the rules are constantly changing. No need to expand your operations to stay compliant with new regulations and handle local tax management. As merchant of record, we do the heavy lifting so you can enjoy quick, easy, and risk-free entry into new markets.
Digital River helped us overcome the complexity of entering those new markets easily and with a single solution. ”As Microsoft Design Lab’s merchant of record, Digital River offers the simplicity of entering new global markets with a single vendor to take on the risk of payments, taxes, compliance and fraud mitigation. Additionally, the pre-built Adobe Commerce extension offered a seamless, low-code integration option at the onset of Xbox’s international Design Lab relaunch.”

We’re so happy the VTEX team introduced us to Digital River. We wanted a payment provider to help with global expansion, and what we got was that and so much more. Not only do they localize the checkout experience; their ability to alleviate the burden of local tax remittance saves us time and money so we can focus on adding value to our products.”
