— About Us —
We're redefining the
Direct Debit experience
Curlec is a VC-backed FinTech company that makes it easy for businesses of all sizes to collect recurring payments.
We are a less expensive and more effective way for businesses to collect recurring payments of varying amounts. It's smarter.
We believe that payments should be as seamless and intuitive as possible. We strive to do this by building technology on top of bank-to-bank payment systems, making it extremely easy for businesses to collect payments. We facilitate transactions by intermediating between Buyers, Sellers and their Banks, making Direct Debit available to businesses of all sizes.

Who We Are
The Curlec team has a wealth of experience dealing with the Direct Debit payment mechanism, having worked on it since the inception of the Interbank Direct Debit Programme by MEPS in 2010 (which is now being managed under PayNet).
Our team built the integrated workflow system for the processing of paper Direct Debit mandates, which is currently being used by all participating banks under the Direct Debit scheme.
We have always had the desire to move to a paperless solution and in 2017, in line with Bank Negara's push to make Malaysia a cashless society, we were presented the opportunity to do so. This is when Curlec was born and we are now truly taking Direct Debit into the digital age.
