— About Us —
We're redefining the
way businesses transact
Curlec is a VC-backed FinTech company that makes it easy for businesses of all sizes to collect recurring payments and take control of their cash flow. We do this by building technology on top of banking payment infrastructure.
Founded in 2018, Curlec is the first independent software company in Malaysia to process online interbank Direct Debit payments and offer this to businesses that have been traditionally underserved by banks. Whilst Direct Debit was our entry point, Curlec has now broadened our payment offerings to include recurring and one-off credit card payments, as well as alternative online banking options. This ensures that merchants have the most comprehensive payment mix for their recurring business activity.
Curlec was named Malaysia's Best FinTech Startup at the Southeast Asian Global Startup Awards 2019.
