As of today (14), from banks and other financial institutions that have joined Pecs, Pay as you go service from central bank (BC), I started introducing Pix Cobrança. Similar to boleto bancário, this service enables instant payment for businesses and service providers through a QR code (an advanced version of a barcode).
As with the bank voucher, Pix Cobrança will allow benefits, fines and discounts to be listed. The customer will only need to open the financial institution app, scan the QR code with the cell phone camera and make the payment via Pix on the current date, with the calculation of fees and discounts.
At this time, the service will not allow you to schedule future maturities. Citing the need for time for financial institutions to adjust, BC postponed scheduling to future dates. This post will not take effect until July 1.
This Sunday (16), Pix will complete six months into operation. By the end of April, according to the latest data released by the Central Bank, Pix had handled R $ 951 trillion in 1 trillion transactions. As of last month, the pay-as-you-go system had 82 million individuals and 5.4 million registered legal entities.
Among individuals, 73% of enrollees have used Pix at least once. Among legal entities, the compliance rate is 85%.
