DBS Becomes One of the First Foreign Banks to Launch e-CNY Merchant Collection Solution in China

DBS bank has announced its status as one of the pioneering foreign banks in China to introduce an e-CNY (electronic Chinese yuan) merchant collection solution. Notably, the bank has successfully facilitated an e-CNY transaction for one of its clients.

The newly launched solution empowers DBS China’s corporate clients by enabling them to accept payments from their customers in e-CNY, China’s central bank digital currency (CBDC). Moreover, these clients can enjoy the seamless and automated settlement of e-CNY funds directly into their CNY bank deposit accounts. This development brings numerous advantages, including:

  1. Streamlined Processes: Businesses can collect payments in the form of e-CNY without the need for cumbersome manual settlement procedures, ensuring a smooth and efficient collection process.
  2. Increased Access: Leveraging the unique capabilities of e-CNY, companies can accept digital payments in underserved regions with limited internet connectivity, expanding their customer base.
  3. Simplified Reconciliation: DBS IDEAL, the bank’s digital platform for business banking, offers consolidated merchant reports with detailed information on e-CNY transactions. This allows for seamless reconciliation and easy access to transaction records.

With this innovative e-CNY merchant collection solution, DBS is at the forefront of digital banking advancements, facilitating efficient and secure transactions for businesses in China.
