Cielo partners with Loggi to facilitate deliveries by small traders

This Saturday Brazil’s largest payments processor Cielo launched a delivery service in partnership with the logistics and technology startup Loggi. The goal is to facilitate delivery services for small businesses who are turning to this type of operation due to the coronavirus pandemic.

According to Valor Econômico newspaper, the service is valid for Cielo customers that use Super Link, a payment method by which the merchant generates a payment link and forwards it to consumers via Whatsapp, e-mail or social networks.

From Tuesday (April 14th), before forwarding the link to the final consumer, the merchant may include Loggi’s delivery service, whose price table varies according to the cities and distance of delivery.

The final consumer then fills in the link, informs the address and finalizes the purchase. Deliveries will be made across 19 Brazilian cities.

In the second week of March, when the isolation measures began in Brazil, Cielo saw its link payment system increase transactions by 200%. In link payments there’s no need for a POS to conclude a transaction, the purchase is paid by credit or debit card through a web link.
