Start selling in Brazil with Local Cards & Boleto Bancario and improve conversion by up to 80%

Selling in to Brazil has its challenges. By not accepting local payment methods, merchants may miss out on sales, but to accept local cards & Boleto Bancario, merchants need to establish a legal entity in Brazil and a relationship with a local provider. Additionally, decline rates are high for foreign merchants, especially since a recent Brazilian directive asks banks to decline international transactions in local (BRL) currency. Tax laws and transferring funds out of the country can be complicated, but BlueSnap has some tools in place to help you navigate these challenges.


BlueSnap is excited to announce a solution that can improve your payment conversion success by 80% with:

  • Local acquiring with Cielo supporting local Visa, MasterCard, Amex, JCB and Discover
  • Localized checkout pages on Browser or Mobile Device – Portuguese, BRL currency
  • Intelligent payment routing – recognize local vs. international cards for optimal payment success

Global merchants can easily accept cross-border payments from Brazilian shoppers

  • Target the 50% of Brazilian shoppers who use only local cards
  • Target the 30% of Brazilian shoppers who use Boleto Bancario

BlueSnap assists merchants with legal entity and taxes

  • BlueSnap has a local partnership allowing merchants to establish their own entity
    or work with us on a legal entity
  • Most merchants can receive a reduction in sales tax (always consult your tax advisor)
  • Most merchants can have other taxes remitted on their behalf so they do not have
    the hassle of registering and filing locally

Changes to the checkout page:

Shoppers from Brazil will see an additional field on the checkout page named CPF/CNPJ. This field is the equivalent to a local Brazilian ID number and is required to complete the purchase. State and postal code will become mandatory fields as well. Because Brazil requires new information on the checkout page, existing merchants’ returning shoppers can not use new local cards.


Payments will be done in real-time and you, as well as the shopper will be notified with the usual emails and Instant Payment Notification.

How you can start selling in Brazil:

Simply email and we’ll begin the onboarding process to get you selling in Brazil.
