Frequently Asked Questions

Is International Pix a partnership with the Central Bank of Brazil?
Pix is an instant payment platform created by the Central Bank of Brazil, which encourages the development of solutions connected to its system and able to expand its functionalities.

PagBrasil is a payment collection agent for Pix and conducts the currency exchange for International Pix as an eFX (Electronic Foreign Exchange), partnering with authorized exchange banks approved by the Central Bank of Brazil.

How is the exchange rate warranted at the time of payment?
When generating the QR code for payment with a banking app or e-wallet, PagBrasil undertakes a real-time currency exchange rate quotation. The rate is then locked in, ensuring that the merchant receives the transaction amount in their chosen currency (dollars or euros) and that the Brazilian customer pays the corresponding amount in Brazilian Reais, without exchange rate variations.

This way, the amount displayed in dollars or euros at the time of payment is the same that will be included in the remittance to the merchant, allowing for revenue forecast. Brazilian customers will also know in advance how much they are paying in Brazilian currency BRL, avoiding overspending and unpleasant surprises later.

What if the customer requests a refund?
If the purchase is canceled on the same day as the payment, the transaction is reversed without additional costs.

If the refund is requested after the payment date, the amount in dollars or euros is deducted from the merchant’s balance and converted to Brazilian Reais using the exchange rate from the time of the refund. Please note that due to variations in foreign exchange rates, the customer may receive a different amount from what was initially paid.

Where is International Pix available?
International Pix is a global solution with a phased development plan. The launch stage is focused on locations with a significant in flow of Brazilian tourists, such as Uruguay, Argentina, Chile, and Florida (USA).
