The so-called gig market enables workers to make additional money by accepting a "gig" on the side. Similarly, the sharing economy refers to systems in which people can purchase services offered by other users, typically through apps. As these marketplaces grow in popularity, it becomes increasingly important for the merchants running these sites to offer payment methods that are convenient for users paying for services and for individuals being paid.

This webinar begins with a look at some of the key payments obstacles sharing and gig economy merchants typically encounter when expanding into Latin America. Three recommendations on how to resolve those challenges are presented next, focusing on local payment methods, flexible payment flows, and local partners. A brief look at anticipated payoffs rounds out the discussion, with a Q&A period concluding the broadcast.
