Important updates on Stripe data storage migration in India

Last updated: May 16, 2023


As part of our continued investment in India and to meet local data storage requirements, we’re moving the servers that store India data to be located within the country. During our migration, Stripe’s core services will remain unaffected. However, some features will be impacted at the end of April 2021.

This page lists the features impacted by our upgrade efforts. We’ll keep this page updated regularly to make sure you’re informed of our progress as we work to quickly restore any disrupted services.

This is a substantive infrastructure change, placing us on the right path to support you for the long-term in India. Should you require any further assistance, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our support team.

Expected product impact on India transactions

  • Stripe Card Updater which runs in the background to update replaced or expired card numbers, will be temporarily disabled in India. This impacts only internationally issued cards.

Billing and Invoicing

Billing and Invoicing remain unaffected with the following exceptions:

  • Starting April 30, 2021, Revenue Recognition in Stripe Billing will be temporarily disabled in India.
