Since its launch in November 2020 by the Brazilian Central Bank, it has seen exponential adoption, with over 70% of Brazilians using it by 2022.
Enter “Pix Automatico,” the next evolution of the Pix system. It is designed for recurring payments, whether monthly, biweekly, or any other interval. This new feature paves the way for the 147 million active Pix users to handle recurring purchases beyond just cards.
Pix Automatico: Features and Advantages
Automatic Recurring Payments: Users can set up payments for regular bills, subscriptions, and more directly from their bank account, making transactions smoother and businesses more efficient.
