What is Pix from PagBrasil?

Since the launch of Pix in 2021, PagBrasil has been a pioneering company in processing Pix payments and enhancing its open-source technology.

Besides PagBrasil Pix for global eCommerce businesses, in 2023, we launched PagBrasil’s international Pix, a POS solution enabling in-store Pix payments for Brazilians abroad. Embedding real-time currency exchange in its application (BRL ↔ USD), the product is successfully processing Pix payments in Uruguay, Argentina, and Chile, and should soon reach merchants in Mexico, the US, Portugal, and Spain.

This year, PagBrasil’s roaming Pix will also facilitate Pix payments for international tourists in Brazil. To develop this solution, PagBrasil is partnering with digital wallets interested in embedding the Pix technology and extending Brazil’s real-time payments revolution to their users worldwide.
