Price of the Community Product: 80 PEN

Payment Gateway Fee: 4%


80 PEN x 0.04 (4%) = 3.2 PEN (This is below the minimum fee for Peru, so the Final Gateway fee that will be charged is 3.9 PEN)

Below is a sample of installment options users will see when choosing to pay via installments.

Credit Cards (Brazil)

Credit Card (Mexico)

Important to note for users who will be paying in installments:

  • Your credit card should have the available balance to cover the full amount before using it. E.g. If the full Price is 900 MXN and the user opted to 3x installment ~350 MXN per month. The available credit card balance to spend should be 900 MXN and above.

  • Upon payment, Ebanx will automatically secure the full payment from your bank by putting the full-price charge on hold. But on your first month, you will just be charged for the first month's installment.
