The digital goods industry in Brazil is an attractive opportunity for merchants. But to get the most out of it, you need the right partner. That’s where BoaCompra comes in.
From games to remote collaboration apps, from educational platforms to data analysis systems, digital goods are growing consistently and rapidly around the world for good reason. Easy distribution, advanced technology, smart solutions, increasing attention to the user experience: all this and much more is building the success of digital products.
However, the heating up of the industry also leads to a natural increase in competitiveness, with consumer preference being fought over in details such as user support and payment system, both in the acquisition of the product and eventual in-app purchases. In a scenario where Brazilians increasingly buy online and consume digital products in large volumes, attention to these details is key to stand out in the market and grow with this type of product.
There are, however, challenges specific to the country that require a good dose of care. Complex tax systems, economic policies that generate instability, currency fluctuations, local payment methods like Pix, to name a few examples, require the entrepreneur to plan and prepare well to operate successfully.
The good part is that there are partners like BoaCompra, with years of experience in helping companies with the right knowledge and technology to facilitate and accelerate this journey. By allowing companies to offer local payment methods and local currencies in Brazil and 16 other Latin American countries, BoaCompra helps businesses access this market that is full of potential.

Have a trustworthy local card acquirer for your operations
For companies who operate in several countries, dealing with different local acquirers can be a tough challenge – and one that demands a lot of effort.
Being a card acquirer means that BoaCompra is a member of a card organisation(s) which means we cover the whole payment process: payment gateway, processing, and acquiring for credit cards. This provides reduced costs, faster processing for end users, more fluidity, solidity and better visibility for merchants during the acceptance of local payments.
Maximize reach by accepting key local payment methods
Since new and digital methods are growing and attracting customers for a faster finance structure, it has become a demand for merchants to add options such as Pix, boleto, e-wallets and bank transfer on its checkout. Even though they have only a few years of use, Brazilian consumers have already incorporated them in their daily lives, and there is no expectation for that to change.
Offer installments and recurring payments
Installments is a very common and used payment facility in Brazil and other countries in LATAM, possible through credit card, that offers customers the flexibility and possibility of splitting up the payment of high-priced products or services purchases so that it fits their monthly budget. With this option, although the customers pay monthly, you receive the money all at once in your account with no extra fee.
Recurring payments, on the other hand, are repeated ones based on subscriptions, where customers do not need to appear in person or virtually, only share their payment information with the processor, which will then charge their card according to the subscription. Payments can be set to be issued yearly, monthly, weekly or even daily, with scheduled due dates or an undefined end. This option provides benefits, like saving merchants and customers time, optimizing the checkout experience, making it easier to predict cash flow and increasing customer retention rates.
