NEW DELHI (Reuters) - PayPal Holdings Inc will wind down its domestic payments business in India from April 1, the company said in a statement on Friday.
San Jose, California-based PayPal will instead focus on its cross-border payments business, which means global customers will still be able to pay Indian merchants using the service.
"From 1 April 2021, we will focus all our attention on enabling more international sales for Indian businesses, and shift focus away from our domestic products in India," the company said.
