Merchant Acquiring: Latin America

Merchant Acquiring: Latin America

  • 2,99700

Latin America is home to some of the most exciting payments markets in the world. With individual markets often volatile, the approaches to developing the payments industry have always had to be uniquely tailored to the environment.

The markets range from the quite advanced to the more developing, but all markets still offer room for growth with penetration of payment instruments and supporting acceptance infrastructure quite low. Some markets are dominated by local banks, while others have a good presence of international players in the acquiring and processing space. Latin America offers a bit of everything but the constant theme is one where all markets have potential good longterm growth.
