Instant TED deposit (Brazil only)

Instant TED deposit (Brazil only)


When you deposit via TED, 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 1% 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 0.2% fee, and then an extra 0.5%** fee for the instant deposit. Once the proper fees have been charged, the dollars get credited to 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 1% fee: R$5.4911
  • Amount in Dollars sent to Passfolio: $181.42
  • Passfolio fee 0.2%: $0.36
  • Instant deposit fee 0.5%*: $1.00***
  • USD credited to your Passfolio account: $180.06

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.
**Minimum of $1 and maximum of $10 fee.
***In this example, the minimum fee was charged since 0.5% would be less than $1.

To activate the Instant deposit feature please follow the steps below:

  1. Open the your Passfolio app

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 TED 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.
