EBANX, global fintech company headquartered in Brazil, will start processing cash voucher and bank transfer payments for Uber in Brazil and other countries in Latin America. EBANX is now a payment partner to support the new Uber Pay ecosystem.
Through the ecosystem, users will be able to use money to buy credits and pay for services through their mobile phone. In Brazil, in particular, users will be able to do this by paying a “boleto” or making a cash deposit from an accredited network.
It is also part of Uber’s plans for this new payment platform to create a connected marketplace focused mainly on users that don’t have a bank account or a credit card.
“Uber is such an important company in the Latin America ecosystem and this partnership represents much of EBANX mission to connect global businesses with the Latin American consumers. The partnership sets a new milestone for EBANX in our continuous growth and expansion. This is further proof that our focus to invest in user experience and technological infrastructure of EBANX and LatAm is the right one,” said Henrik Nilsmo, Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) of EBANX.
The first integration tests are being conducted and more details of the partnership will be released soon.
