EBS payment gateway international payments

Merchants using EBS can accept global Visa, Master Card, American Express, JCB and Diners cards. EBS also allows for auto-selection and payment in your customer’s home currency for 11 major currencies while you as the merchant get your settlements in Indian rupees.

EBS uses Dynamic Currency Conversion (DCC) to do so, but typically DCC has a large markup on top of the real exchange rate. In that markup difference, your customers end up paying more for their purchase. That is why Wise Business ensures to always give you the real exchange rate, the one you see on Google. So you can pass on the savings to your customers⁴.

EBS payment gateway settlement

EBS requires the merchants to manually capture each transaction in the merchant’s dashboard online. So you would need to log in and capture your payment, and then from there click on authorize payments by the payment IDs⁵.

Once that is complete, your funds will be credited per the settlement cycle of your plan⁶. The capture also must happen within 12 calendar days from payment or it will be canceled in the system⁷. Overall, EBS is a more manual and time-intensive process versus other payment gateways out there.

EBS payment gateway customer care

The EBS customer care is available by phone and there is a facility to submit tickets for issues on the site. There is also a knowledge vault on the EBS site to help answer questions you may have. The availability hours for the customer care, however, is not listed on the site⁸.
