The credit and debit card payment market in Brazil was until 2010 a duopoly. Until then, only two companies were allowed and licensed to operate. From a new regulatory framework of the industry promoted by the Central Bank and a new law passed by the National Congress, the market truly opened up to welcome new acquirers and the exclusivity relations with the card flags were finally put to an end.
At this moment, a dream was born among a group of entrepreneurs who were active on the Brazilian payments industry already and had been quite successful. Two years later, Stone was founded and within months it had already the certifications of the Visa and Mastercard flags to act in the Brazilian market.
Stone is an entity licensed to process electronic payments nationwide, in the physical and in the virtual world.
Through various means of capture, we process the transaction made with credit cards and we guarantee the payment to the merchant. Moreover, we offer various services to increase sales of our customers and improve control of their receivables.
