The partnership will enable the clients of Citi to accept over 100 consumer payments online methods in 11 countries. The EBANX platform will facilitate merchants as well as consumers. Citi already offers comprehensive solutions to corporate and institutional clients in key Latin American markets, like Mexico and Brazil.

According to a study by EBANX, the e-commerce sector is growing rapidly in Latin America. For 2022, the growth rate is forecasted at around 30%. Through EBANX’s collaboration with Citi, the institutional clients of Citi will be able to enhance payments acceptance and optimize local card processing.
