Who created Pix?

The new payment method was created by central banks. But it will be financial institutions that will deliver Pix to individuals and businesses: banks, payment means and fintechs.

How does it work?

How to register

To register with Pix, you must first create a Pix key. The Pix key represents the address of your Pix account.

To create a Pix key, an individual or company needs to use one of four forms of identification: CPF/CNPJ, e-mail, cell phone number or random key.

A random key is a way to receive Pix without entering personal data. It will be similar to a login, a randomly generated set of numbers, letters, and symbols used to identify the destination account for the resource.
