Boleto, Brazil's traditional alternative payment method
Created in the early 90's, Boleto became part of Brazilian culture. It is a traditional voucher/cash-based payment method exclusively used in Brazil. Commonly used by people to pay for monthly bills, such as water and energy, this method has become widely used for online purchases as well.
For merchants, offering Boleto is a way to increase their total available market in Brazil.
Almost USD 17 billion in digital commerce's sales volume
