 Digital River helps brands remove the complexities and barriers to selling online internationally. Companies of all sizes benefit from Digital River’s global scale to grow their revenue, accelerate time to new markets, and protect their business from risk. With over 25 years of ecommerce experience, Digital River offers an unparalleled global infrastructure to manage vital back-office work like payments and billing, taxes, fraud, and global regulatory compliance.

This is the official Digital River extension built in collaboration with Diconium. Activate the Digital River extension to configure your Magento store with the right local payment methods and currencies in the countries where you sell. In addition to payment processing, Digital River works behind the scenes to fight fraud and minimize chargebacks, optimize billing to increase authorization rates, and shield your business from the risks of global tax and regulatory changes.

This extension is essential for companies looking to enter new global markets and configure their store locales with the right local payment methods, language and currency. This is the only extension you’ll need for payments, fraud, tax, financial reconciliation, and compliance.

Open New Markets

Enter new markets in months, not years. With pre-established local acquirers and selling entities around the world, Digital River helps you accelerate time to market and ignite your global sales in over 200 countries.

Optimize with Great Local Experiences

Where most payment processors offer a suboptimal cross-border model, Digital River gives you the onshore advantage of local acquiring. Unlike cross-border models, we help you offer the right local payment methods, language, and currency and ensure that your customers don’t get hit with foreign transaction fees. We do all this by leveraging the 20 local acquirers and 9 selling entities we’ve established around the world. As a result, you see higher authorization rates, lower cart abandonment, and greater overall customer experiences.

Grow Your Revenue

By giving you the onshore advantage over cross-border processing, you can increase authorization rates by 8-12%. And beyond that, we further optimize your revenue by using machine learning to find the optimal route for transactions. By combining machine learning with the industry’s most sophisticated billing technology and deep acquirer network, we can determine where and when to route a transaction for optimal success. And we retry billing attempts to further reduce your decline rates.

Shield Your Business from Risk

Avoid fatal fines, litigation, and damage to your brand’s reputation by staying compliant with ever-changing tax and data privacy regulations. Worried about filing VAT taxes to multiple tax authorities? We do that for you. Worried about staying compliant with GDPR, PSD2 and other consumer protection regulations? We manage that for you. And we do all this through our unique merchant and seller of record business model.



Digital River provides PCI compliance, tokenization, and fraud screening through an API reference. When the shopper enters payment information at checkout, they interact with secure payment fields that are hosted by Digital River within a Magento-hosted page. The shopper is never redirected to another page. Those secure fields are served up by digitalriver.js, a developer-friendly library that allows brands to securely process transactions without having to take on the responsibilities of PCI compliance. When brands use the digitalriver.js API reference on their Magento store, Digital River serves up payment methods, validates card data, tokenizes customer information, performs fraud screening, collects sensitive card data, and processes transactions in a manner that is fully-compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS). Digital River is a Level 1 PCI compliant service provider. Customer data is stored on Digital River’s secure servers, never on Magento servers. The service does not allow PCI data to hit the Magento server.
