"If the time [for Brazil] is now, localization is key," says João del Valle, COO at the fintech EBANX

During the event, EBANX COO released the "Beyond Borders Research", a study conducted by the fintech about the state of cross-border e-commerce in the country.

Brazil is relevant, is big, is mature and it’s worth the investment,” said EBANX COO, João del Valle, during the launch of the Beyond Borders Research–a consumer behavior study conducted by the global fintech EBANX on the state of cross-border e-commerce in the country.

Led by the Market Intelligence Team, the survey was conducted alongside industry experts and analyzed the purchasing habits of 3,000 Brazilian consumers from all over the country who have bought international products and services in the last 12 months.
