ESET & Nexway – A lasting and prosperous collaboration since 2018

Nexway is proud to be providing its full eCommerce capabilities to ESET, a global leader in digital security that protects over 1 billion internet users in over 200 countries and territories.

ESET India & Nexway – An extended multinational relationship

Nexway has supported ESET to serve millions of customers across Europe. The relationship has evolved through many stages as both companies continued to grow to meet the changing market needs. In India, Nexway responded with precision to the challenges of this specific country’s requirements. The expertise and ability to innovate in payment operations to comply with specific auto-renewal regulations made Nexway the preferred reseller for ESET sales in India.

“We have seen a significant uptick in transaction acceptance rates in our India e-store since switching to Nexway. Their commitment to meeting local regulatory requirements, particularly for recurring subscription transactions, is also an aspect we truly value. It is reassuring for us to work with a company that not only focuses on delivering results, but also ensures that we are in line with local rules and regulations,” says Jane Ng, Director of Marketing – APAC, ESET.

Reserve Bank of India Guidelines

The Reserve Bank of India has mandated new rules for handling recurring transactions for Indian credit and debit cardholders. Regulatory requirements apply to recurring auto-renewable subscriptions preventing these subscriptions from auto-renewing without the customer’s consent. Instead of customers giving a one-time confirmation, banks must inform customers in advance about every recurring payment. In addition, consumers with an ongoing subscription will have to authenticate once more to enroll in the new e-mandate.

Directly concerned, ESET strived to provide Indian customers more control and transparency in the transaction process of their payments. It was crucial to set up new compliance renewal processes to onboard new customers, get them to sign up for auto-debits, and preserve the renewal of acquired customers. That’s where Nexway comes in.

What does this mean for merchants?

As a first step, merchants need to adopt or create a new compliant solution or put their services on standby until a provided compliant solution is. All payment transactions will be declined if the payment occurs through a model that does not comply with the new regulations. Secondly, Indian customers who were once under a recurring subscription are no longer under the subscription and must renew the service.

As merchant and ESET official reseller, Nexway has updated and evolved its subscription solution in India according to the new RBI guidelines in order to support ESET India business’ deployment in the best possible way. Through its expertise and relationships with global payment service providers, Nexway allow Indian customers to make recurring payments while existing customers can swiftly and seamlessly return to being serviced as they were previously.

“The whole Nexway Team is extremely excited to be able to bring its expertise to one of the top software security publisher, ESET.
Acting as ESET online reseller in India, we are the one of the very few Companies capable of selling software as real auto-renewed subscriptions, under the RBI strict rules for collecting e-mandates and auto-renewal process. Providing our white glove solution through our ecommerce platform and merchant services, Nexway covers the whole spectrum of digital sales complexity including payment, taxation, anti-fraud, customer support, subscription model enablement. With an increasing acquisition cost for paid users, leveraging auto-renewal and maximizing retention is key to subscription business model performance.” says Pierre-Henri Paulhe, VP, Global Accounts at Nexway.

Flexibility and reactivity An ESET’s necessity for a remote catalog deployment
