Add Brazilian Payment Methods Easily to WooCommerce Shops
PagBrasil WooCommerce Extension
PagBrasil’s in-house developed WooCommerce plugin was first launched in 2014 and has been upgraded multiple times over the past years. WooCommerce is the most popular WordPress e-commerce plugin, and, as a logical step, PagBrasil has made it easier for merchants using WooCommerce to integrate all major Brazilian payment methods. The extension is fully responsive, providing a seamless payment experience on desktop as well as on any mobile screen resolution.
The extension was developed as a standard WordPress plugin. It supports the main payment methods offered by PagBrasil: local credit cards, boleto bancário and online banking transfer from Banco do Brasil, Bradesco and Banrisul. PagBrasil’s WooCommerce extension also allows merchants to use our unique Boleto Flash®, the only boleto on the market providing payment confirmation within two hours on business days.
Functionalities such as pre-authorization and fraud prevention – extremely important for e-commerce businesses – are compatible with PagBrasil’s WooCommerce extension. The extension allows merchants to adjust a series of parameters to adapt it to their individual needs. Such parameters include:
- the number of installments for credit card payments
- the number of days until a boleto bancário expires
- a soft descriptor – a message that identifies the merchant or product sold on a consumer’s credit card statement
- an individual message shown on a boleto bancário
To start using PagBrasil’s payment platform with your WooCommerce store, contact us to open a merchant account with PagBrasil. Once this step is done, our technical team will send the plugin as well as instructions on how to get started.
