Launching and running an IT export business is fabulous–until you must deal with international payments.

  • Currency Conversion and Exchange Rates: Banks often impose unfavourable currency conversion rates and fees which hampers profitability, specifically if you're operating on thin margins.
  • Processing Delays: Conventional international transactions can take several days due to intermediary banks' involvement and complex clearing processes. Such delays not only impede business operations but also hinder client relationships.
  • Hidden Charges: Traditional banking systems often have hidden fees that accumulate over time, eroding the overall transaction value.

Traditional banking systems are reliable but often fail at the speed and ease required for international transactions. The expected growth rate for B2B cross-border payments will reach $2,515 billion by 2030 at 10.8%

Therefore, platforms like Skydo aim to accelerate business growth by overcoming conventional barriers to trade.

The signup procedure requires no physical document submission. The simplicity of verifying identity and compliance procedures is unlike any payment gateway that may take days to verify and then onboard. 

Here’s a step-by-step guide for a seamless onboarding journey as a primary business owner/director on Skydo’s platform

Skydo Login
  1. The first step requires you to add and verify your email ID. Enter the correct email ID to receive OTP for verification. Input OTP from your inbox and click 'Verify OTP.'

  2. After OTP verification, you will see a page with instructions for KYC and required documents. Click 'Agree and Continue.'

  3. The next window asks you to enter your Business Pan Number.  The business details, such as the Company name, CIN (Company Identification Number), and GSTIN number, automatically appear in the designated text boxes. (the platform pulls the data from the government database). Add your primary business activity and your business’s official website URL, and click ‘Confirm and Continue.’  

  4. Upon business details confirmation, add your personal PAN number and a picture of the original copy. The platform then verifies the image. Any images of a photocopy or black and white pictures are rejected. 

    The system verifies your name on the PAN Card image to the information obtained from the Ministry of Corporate Affairs against the Business PAN number allotted to the company. 

  5. Next, enter your Aadhaar number and click ‘Verify.’ Your Aadhar number should be linked to a mobile number. 

  6. Enter the OTP received on your registered mobile number. 

  7. After Aadhaar verification, you must provide a mobile number for further communication. Another OTP is sent to your mobile number for verification. Click ‘Verify’. 

  8. The next step involves entering the beneficial owners. The platform prepopulates the page since you are also a beneficial owner. Besides you, if there’s any other beneficial owner, you can add them manually. 

    You also need to provide the PAN number of an alternate beneficial owner to verify the same. 

  9. The final step involves verifying your bank account via penny drop.

Once you’re on board, you can explore a host of features that make Skydo your go-to solution for seamless international transactions.
