PISP with Direct API


This guide will walk you through a basic API integration that accepts payments via PISP in EBANX.


PISP, Pix as Payment Initiator, is a feature of Pix with Open Finance. For this, Pix is offered by EBANX Instituição de Pagamento, which is a direct participant of the instant payment arrangement as specified in the Resolution nº1 of the Brazilian Central Bank.

About this guide

By following this basic integration guide, you will understand how you can accept PISP payments in your check-out, by using EBANX Direct API. To complete a payment with PISP you will need a single API call that will create the payment and provide the necessary information for the customer to complete the transaction.


PISP integration through Direct API is available in Brazil only.

What you will need

A Sandbox Account

As with any secure payment integration, you will first need to set up authorization. The EBANX sandbox allows you to set up a test environment to run transactions using test credit card numbers and explore our payment solutions.

Sign up for an Sandbox Account at our EBANX Business Page, select your business model and answer a few questions. We'll get in touch with you shortly after!
