Nexway Brazil Grows by Leaps and Bounds, Announces Key Customer Wins

Local subsidiary of digital commerce leader now firmly established in the fast-growing Brazilian market for digital video games, apps, and software products.

NANTERRE, France; SAN FRANCISCO, California; and SÃO PAULO, Brazil (October 21, 2014) – Digital commerce provider Nexway announced that its Brazilian subsidiary has grown by leaps and bounds in the first half of 2014, securing significant customer references for its best-in-class managed e-commerce solutions for publishers and online retailers of digital video games, apps, and software products on PC and Android™ platforms.

“We see the Brazilian market for digital goods as one of the most promising for Nexway,” said Gilles Ridel, Nexway Founder and CEO. “Having secured top-tier references in the country for both our direct-to-consumer and indirect managed e-commerce solutions, we look forward to helping other digital publishers and their online retailers succeed in the Brazilian market,” also said Gilles Ridel.

“The Brazilian digital commerce market is challenging on several counts,” said Marcos Souza, Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer of No Zebra Network, whose editorial and download websites (including Baixaki and Click Jogos) have over 36 million unique visitors, giving the company one of the top ten largest online audiences in Brazil. “Consumers expect to be offered local payment methods, such as Boleto Bancário and installment payments. Complying with local e-commerce tax legislation takes local expertise. Nexway’s solidly implanted presence in the country and extensive digital PC software catalog was key to Baixaki’s choice of Nexway as a digital partner in Brazil,” also said Marcos Souza.

Onshore Brazilian Subsidiary since 2011

Recognizing the need for a local presence, Nexway set up a dedicated Brazilian subsidiary in São Paulo in 2011.

In Brazil, where stringent and complex regulations are in place, Nexway has the ability to receive end-user payments in Brazilian reals, execute currency conversion, and pay remittances in its customers’ preferred currency, including U.S. dollars and euros. In the Brazilian states where declarations of online sales must be performed online in real-time, the Nexway platform is integrated with all required state fiscal services.

Nexway supports popular local Brazilian payment methods including Boleto Bancário, local credit cards and installment payments – ensuring frictionless e-commerce checkouts in the country. Support for local credit cards is key in Brazil where offshore transactions using international credit cards incur extra taxes, collected by the banks.
