That’s why we’re excited to partner with dLocal to allow users to pay with the alternative payment methods they trust, and ultimately scale Surfshark to a broader range of clients around the world.”

“Surfshark’s expansion is a true customer success story,“ said Michel Golffed, SVP Growth at dLocal. Following the fast, hassle-free integration of One dLocal, we ended up broadening their initial expansion plans to include more markets than originally intended. We are honored to be selected as the exclusive payments facilitator to support Surfshark’s global expansion in new markets across Africa, Asia, and Latin America.”
