This move reaffirms their unwavering commitment to delivering top-tier payment solutions in the vibrant markets of Latin America and Africa.

Since 2021, both companies have been committed to creating an efficient payment process that sets new industry standards for speed and reliability, improving the payment experience in Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, and South Africa. The partnership revolves around local acquiring, ensuring lower processing costs, faster settlements, and better customer support, ensuring a superior level of authorization rates for customers in those countries.
