Accept Mexico's preferred voucher payment method
Around 70%* of Mexicans do not have access to banking services, and OXXO allows merchants to tap into this substantial group of online buyers. With more than 18,000 stores across the country, consumers can pay for their online purchases in cash, and merchants have zero chance of a chargeback.
OXXO is an extremely popular chain of convenience stores in Mexico. With the aim of facilitating payments in the country, the company created the OXXO invoice, a document that is emitted with a barcode and can be paid in any one of the 18,000 convenience stores located throughout the country. It is a popular payment method used to pay from utility bills to online shopping. OXXO is very similar to other popular payment methods in Latin America, such as Boleto in Brazil.
Mexico is a country with high levels of informality in the economy, making it a cash‑based society. Also, international credit cards make up only 39%* of all e‑commerce transactions, therefore enterprise companies that want to succeed in the region can't have only international credit cards in their payment strategy. Voucher payments play a strategic role in the region, and to get access to a potential customer base is essential to offer local payment options.
For cultural reasons, Mexicans are used to paying with vouchers for their purchases, even if they do have a bank account, debit card, or credit card. This habit repeats itself in online shopping, leading customers to look for e‑commerces that offer voucher payment methods. 19%* of payments processing in the online market is done by cash vouchers.
