Speaking on this latest offering, Wagner Ruiz, co-founder and CFO of EBANX, said that the company commenced with Latin American payment solutions for global websites, which facilitated in international products and services such as Airbnb, Spotify and AliExpress becoming household names in Brazil and in seven other Latin American countries.

EBANX, established in 2012, initially disbursed payments for Brazilian clients of global websites and later on, grew to provide services to Brazilian eCommerce portals. A customer holding an EBANX account is eligible to get a card with 5 percent cash-back rewards and app-based payment options.
