Most merchants in Brazil πŸ‡§πŸ‡· don't accept Revolut Visa cards


They will not do that in the foreseeable future. The fees charged to merchants for accepting a domestic card are lower than those for foreign cards, particularly with debit cards. I found one supermarket in Rio, Mundial, that accepted only Brazilian debit cards for cost reasons. All credit cards and all foreign debit cards were refused. We had to pay cash - ridiculous in this day and age, particularly when one considers that even beach vendors in Rio accept cards.


don’t be surprised, it’s the same in Germany too.


It’s stupid. In an age where tourism makes a good amount of your customer base, you should accept any card if you’re not in a cash base country. Scamming customers to make a greater profit is unacceptable too :expressionless:
