Steam users in Brazil can now pay with the national currency of reais, with Boleto. Boleto is a payment service regulated by the Brazilian Federation of Banks. To purchase games on Steam with reais
, Brazilian users will select "Boleto" as their payment and receive a voucher via email, which they must then take to the bank to fund the transaction. Games will remain in pending until this process is complete.
Steam plans to add more payment methods in Brazil, including "deposits, account transfers, PagSeguro and local credit cards."
This move harkens back to when Steam added Russian rubles; soon after activating that currency, Valve and Xsolla established cash kiosks in Russia
, where users can add cash directly to their Steam accounts.
