Easy Integration of Brazilian Payment Methods for Prestashop Stores

Prestashop Module

PagBrasil’s Prestashop Module


PagBrasil has recently added its in-house developed Prestashop module to its list of extensions. With the goal of facilitating the integration of all major Brazilian payment methods to e-commerce websites, developing an add-on for Prestashop was a natural step. The module comes with a fully responsive technology which provides a seamless payment experience on any device screen resolution.


The Prestashop module supports all local payment methods offered by PagBrasil: domestic credit cards, Brazilian debit cards, boleto bancário and online banking transfer from Banco do Brasil, Bradesco, Itaú and Banrisul. In addition, PagBrasil’s module for Prestashop gives merchants access to our exclusive Boleto Flash®. This enhanced version of the traditional boleto solves two major issues of the popular payment option: it speeds up the payment confirmation to less than one hour on business days, as opposed to up to 3 days, and provides a responsive layout to facilitate the boleto visualization and payment on mobile devices.


Additional functionalities such as pre-authorization and fraud prevention, which are crucial in the e-commerce environment, are compatible with PagBrasil’s Prestashop module. Furthermore, merchants can adjust a number of parameters to adapt the module to their individual needs, such as:


  • number of credit card installments
  • days until a boleto bancário expires
  • soft descriptor that identifies the merchant or product sold on the consumer’s credit card statement
  • individual message shown on a boleto bancário


Merchants who have set their stores on the Prestashop platform can start using PagBrasil’s payment platform by reaching out to our team to open a merchant account. After that, our technical team will send the module, as well as instructions on how to get started.
