PIX (Brazil only)


When you deposit via PIX, our payments partner, Facilita Pagamentos S/A, is the party responsible for receiving and converting your money. When they receive your deposit, they charge 0.38% of IOF (federal tax), then add their 0.6% fee to the current Dollar/Real rate and convert your money to dollars*. Once your Reais have turned into Dollars, they send it to us. As soon as we receive it, we deduct our 0.85% fee and then credit your account.

Here's an example of how your money is converted:

  • Deposit in Reais: R$1,000.00
  • 0.38% of IOF: R$3.80
  • Available for conversion: R$996.20
  • Current Dollar/Real rate: R$5.4368
  • Dollar/Real rate with Facilita's 0.6% fee: R$5.4694
  • Amount in Dollars sent to Passfolio: $182.14
  • Passfolio fee 0.85%: $1.55
  • USD credited to your Passfolio account: $180.59

Example is for illustrative purposes only. Actual fees may vary.

Please keep in mind that this is an example and the numbers have been rounded for 2 decimals. Small differences may occur depending on the Dollar/Real rate.  

*The conversion may not be immediately made upon arrival of your deposit at Facilita in case your account has not been approved yet or if you have pending documentation to submit.

Time to reach your account

The estimated time for the money to reach your account is typically between 10-30 minutes when the deposit is made Monday through Friday (except holidays) between 9am to 2:30pm BRT. There can still be bank delays but we will be crediting deposits ASAP.

Holding period

There is no holding period for funds deposited by PIX.

Currency exchange

Facilita FX uses a service called Broadcast to get its rates. Conversion to U.S. dollars is made once your deposit is received by Facilita, which means that the conversion rate of your deposit will be confirmed after Facilita FX receives your deposit and converts the money. 

Please note: Deposits made in cash directly in the bank will not be accepted. It has to be made via PIX from an account registered under the same CPF as the one registered at Passfolio. This way we will be able to identify and match your transaction with your Passfolio account.
