Latin Americans are connected and hungry for global products

Today, Latin America has 650 million citizens and most of them believe that international products and services are better than local ones, driving them seek out options outside their countries.

Access to these global giants is not difficult, since much of the population is connected and online. Brazilians, for example, are in the ranking of the most connected people in the world, with an average of 9 hours per day. Also, smartphone adoption will reach 71% by 2020 in Latin America, against the 66% that is the global average.

Cards are not the only way Latin Americans pay for their online transactions. In fact, they are used to pay for their day-to-day expenses through bank transfers, cash vouchers, and local cards. These methods are often how Latin Americans want to pay for their online services and goods as well.


Whether you’re looking to expand your current business in Latin America – or enter the region for the first time – offering local payment methods is the key to success.
