About payment system

With a staggering customer base of 119 million users, PIX allows shoppers to make online purchases and in-store payments effortlessly through QR codes. The process is simple: customers use their banking or wallet app to scan the QR code provided by the merchant, and within seconds, the payment is confirmed and the funds are transferred in real-time from the customer’s account to the payment service provider.

One of the key advantages of PIX is its instantaneous payment confirmation, providing users with the flexibility and convenience of making transactions anytime, day or night. Gone are the days of waiting for business hours or enduring lengthy bank transfer processes. Furthermore, PIX ensures the utmost security by adhering to Brazil’s Central Bank regulations, protecting against fraud and money laundering.

Merchants also benefit immensely from the PIX system. They can receive payment confirmations almost immediately after a sale, leading to improved cash-flow management and better business relationships. Moreover, the platform’s free and real-time nature minimizes transaction costs and reduces the risk of fraud, making it particularly appealing to digital businesses. 

As PIX evolves, Brazil’s Central Bank is actively exploring features that will enable offline and international transactions, further solidifying PIX’s status as a revolutionary payment platform with global potential.
