The “new normal” is here, and it’s highly digital — especially in fast-evolving Latin America.

As economies recover from the pandemic and online shopping becomes a daily habit for more and more Latin American consumers, the region presents huge opportunities for merchants that know how to make the most of Latam’s markets.

That includes understanding the payment landscape of each country: from domestic-only credit cards to revolutionary digital payment methods, such as Brazil’s Pix, the different markets in the region have specific habits and expectations that must be considered when selling to Latin America.

But one thing is true for all Latam countries: e-commerce is thriving more than any other type of shopping, driven by the pandemic but also by local consumers’ preference for the agility, wider product variety, better prices, and innovative shopping experiences that only the online environment can provide.
