Cash gives way to innovative gift cards in Brazil

While cash remains the most popular payment method in Brazil, where it accounts for more than a third of payments, alternative payment methods such as gift cards are gaining market share quite quickly.

Over the past four to eight quarters, the popularity of gift cards has increased dramatically; mainly due to the increasing shift of consumers towards online shopping. While in markets such as the US, UK and India where gift cards are often used for giving, Brazil is the market where consumers buy gift cards for themselves. Notably, consumers cited convenience as one of the top drivers for using gift cards to shop offline and online in the country.

Brazilian culture is another reason why cash is giving way to gift cards in Brazil. Overall, Brazil is a prepaid country. Consumers use prepaid cards (gift cards) for almost everything. About 55% of mobile phones are prepaid, transport cards are prepaid and even meal vouchers are prepaid. Moreover, the penetration of gift cards is also increasing due to the low usage of credit cards in Brazil.
