Payments in Brazil 2017: What Consumers Want

Summary
Despite Brazil’s economic progress, cash remains the primary payment instrument as much of the population - especially in rural areas - still do not have access to basic financial services. However, payment cards are emerging as a substitute for cash, as the government and banks begin to provide basic financial access to the unbanked. This includes the government’s policy for financial inclusion, the expansion of banking infrastructure in rural regions, and the appointment of banking correspondents. According to World Bank statistics, Brazil has made substantial progress in terms of financial inclusion, with the percentage of the population aged 15 or above with a bank account increasing from 64.3% in 2013 to 75.5% in 2017.

Debit card penetration in Brazil stood at 155.5, the highest in comparison to its regional peers. Banco Central do Brasil (BCB), the country’s central bank, has simplified the process of opening a bank account, facilitating access to basic banking products. Furthermore, the government has introduced the Bolsa Familia program to provide social security benefits to low-income families by direct fund transfers. Various such initiatives have driven debit card growth in Brazil.

Pay-later card penetration in Brazil stood at 72.4 cards per 100 individuals in 2017. The growing lower- and middle-class populations have fueled credit card penetration. In November 2010, the National Monetary Council made it compulsory for banks to provide basic credit cards with lower annual fees. Consequently, banks started to offer basic credit cards for low- and middle-income consumers, leading to growth in the number of credit cards in circulation.

E-commerce market posted a review-period (2013-17) CAGR of 17.2%, growing from BRL31.1bn ($9.6bn) in 2013 to BRL58.7bn ($18.0bn) in 2017. While payment cards remain the preferred method of online payment, alternative payments such as PayPal, Boleto Bancário, and Masterpass are all used for online shopping. The availability of digital wallet services, and the security and convenience they offer, has made them popular among consumers.
