UOL BoaCompra, a specialist in digital goods payments throughout Latin America, is expanding into Chile.
The company now offers 18 additional local payment methods including the company’s own currency, BoaCompra GOLD, Redcompra, Servipag.com and Khipu (online bank transfers), enabling international game companies to access a rapidly growing online population in Chile.
UOL BoaCompra’s portfolio of localized payment options in the market includes all local online payment options available, allowing gamers to use their preferred payment method with the greatest accessibility and ease.
The Brazilian-based company also launched its popular online game portal in the country, GO4GOLD, to allow gamers in Chile the opportunity to discover online games accepting Chile-specific payment methods. Furthermore, the cooperation with VALVE means that UOL BoaCompra now supports local currency and payment options available on Steam.
As the first South American country to join the OECD while boasting the highest GDP per capita in Latin America, Chile is staying ahead of the curve with more than 72.3% (2014) of the population connected online and a total of US$3.2bn (2013) spent annually in e-commerce.
UOL BoaCompra currently works with more than 200 game developers and publishers to monetize their games throughout emerging markets in Latin America, southern Europe and Turkey.
The company’s latest full-service payments launch into Chile comes off the heels of the company’s expansion into Colombia and Peru – part of a greater development to provide the first Latin American e-wallet for gamers, and a complete solution for game developers and publishers looking to bring their titles to the region.
