Brazilian fintech, EBANX, will be Uber’s exclusive partner for payment processing of PIX, Brazil’s instant payment system controlled by the country’s Central Bank. This will be used for Uber rides requests and Uber Eats orders..
Brazilians will be able to pay for their Uber rides and Uber Eats orders with PIX, and EBANX, through its company EBANX Pagamentos Ltda., that offers local payment processing in Brazil.
The partnership between Uber and EBANX for payments with PIX is an addition to the already existing integration of the two companies for Uber Cash in Brazil, which started in 2019.
“We truly believe that PIX will be a milestone of financial inclusion in Brazil, bringing millions of Brazilians into the digital economy. We are happy to partner with Uber for this new payment method, offering more options for Brazilians to enjoy their services, and addressing Uber’s needs of payments, localization and good user experience through our solutions,” Henrik Nilsmo, CCO of EBANX said in the release.
