Nubank has added three new product categories – Games, Travel, and Pet – and ten new partner stores to its recently launched in-app e-commerce vertical. As of this Tuesday (4), the digital bank’s customers will be able to buy products directly from the fintech app, from stores such as Netshoes, Zattini, Shopee, Nike, Centauro, Booking.com, Xbox, Playstation, Hype Games, and Petlove.

Nubank’s in-app e-commerce platform was launched last November as part of the fintech company’s strategy to expand its product portfolio and look for ways to monetize its customer base of over 48 million people. According to Juan Carlos Guillermety, VP and general manager of marketplace at the digital bank, Nubank has been aiming to expand the range of products offered in the app and add more and more categories in the marketplace to “ensure ease for our customers in many other areas of their lives.”

The Nubank Shopping section, in addition to the new partners, announced today, already has large e-commerces and retail brands in Brazil, such as Magalu, Via, Dafiti, AliExpress, and MobCom.
