Pix is an instant payment platform that was created by Banco Central do Brasil. It went into the testing phase in April 2020 and was later launched in November 2020. The system operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Transactions are completed within 10 seconds. Users can initiate transfers via channels including mobile banking, internet banking, bank branches, and ATMs. Transfers can be made using the recipient’s account number, Pix key (such as phone number, social security number, tax ID, or email address), or by scanning QR codes.
