Brazilian payment gateway provider PagBrazil has recently launched a plugin for eBay owned Ecommerce platform Magento to offer merchants support for Brazilian methods of payment.
With Brazil being one of the fastest growing Ecommerce markets, merchants are looking for ways of offering support to the country. However, with a growth rate of 29% in 2013, it can be difficult for merchants outside of Brazil to offer services due to local payment methods.
Brazil hosts a variety of local credit and debit cards such as Cielo and Itau Unibanco, and alternative payment method Boleto Bancario. PagBrazil’s plugin will give Magento merchants the ability to transact with Brazilian customers by using their preferred local payment methods.
“Responding to merchants’ demands, we are proud to announce the launch of the Magento module. It is an additional component of our strategy to provide merchants with the best in market customer experience. The commitment to our clients and an outstanding customer service is one of the major pillars of PagBrasil’s exceptional growth the past years,” stated Ralf Germer, CEO and co-founder of PagBrasil.
