Women in Latin America discussing payment processing with EBANX and d.local

Discover the differences between local Latin American payment service providers. Between dLocal vs EBANX, which is right for you?

Merchants looking to make cross-border sales in Latin America need to fully understand the market. 40% of online purchases in Argentina are paid for in cash, only 27% of Brazilian consumers have credit cards and only 37% of the Mexican population have a bank account (McKinsey).

This means you need to offer your global customers a wide array of payment options, especially in Latin America where many consumers are underbanked or prefer alternative payment methods. 

The question is, between dLocal vs EBANX, which of these two local Latin American payment service providers is better for your business? 

What is dLocal?

dLocal is a payment processing platform that offers solutions for payments and payouts. They are based in Uruguay and serve global merchants and consumers in emerging markets primarily in Latin America.

What is EBANX?

They offer a greater array of services than dLocal, providing assistance with payments and payouts and help with recurring payments, billing, and localization consulting.

EBANX Pricing

EBANX charges a set percentage of 2.7%+ 30¢ per transaction. They have competitive pricing relative to other payment gateways with similar features. They also do not offer a free or trial version of their product.
