Which online payment methods to accept in Brazil?

Brazilians prefer to pay online with Boleto Bancario, bank transfers, MasterCard and VISA. Boleto payments can be used by shoppers without a bank account and with only cash as a means of payment.

One of the popular, fast-growing payment methods in Brazil is PIX. Built and owned by the Central Bank, Pix works via a Dynamic QR code or via Code Copy, depending on the customer's device. It is very similar to Boleto Bancario however more 'digitalised' and expected to rapidly grow in volumes.
