Boleto Bancário is a popular Brazilian payment method that allows a shopper to make online purchases at a bank, at an ATM or via internet banking.
In Brazil, a large percentage of the population does not own a bank account. This has made Boleto Bancário a prevalent solution amongst the country’s legion of online shoppers.

Boleto Bancário is used regularly for both B2B and B2C payments. There is no extra cost to the shopper when making the payment and the merchant receives notification of Boleto payments every business day.
