Pix payments or transfers do not have a minimum limit. However, participating institutions have the authority to set maximum limits on the amount that users can pay or transfer via Pix.

What happens if I don't have enough funds in the PIX to pay for my flight?

  1. Scan a QR Code: Utilise your smartphone's camera within your financial or payment institution's application to scan a QR Code specifically designed for Pix payments.
  2. Pix Copy and Paste: If you are unable to scan the QR Code with your phone's camera, you can select the "Pix Copy and Paste" option. This allows you to manually enter the code associated with the QR Code. This option is also available for internet banking.
