Gutiérrez & Arrieta advised Redelcom S.A.

Mercado Libre, a technology firm and the largest e-commerce company in Latin America, executed the acquisition of Redelcom, a Chilean company that has been operating since 2010 as a payment services provider and that in October 2019 began offering point-of-sale (POS) terminals with the latest technology to retailers.

Mercado Libre seeks to consolidate its value proposition in Chile and enhance the growth of its multiple payment tools and digital financial solutions. This is part of its purpose to democratize trade and finance in Latin America and contribute to reduce financial inclusion gaps, helping to improve the quality of life of people and boosting the business of companies, especially SMEs and entrepreneurs.

Mercado Libre, through Mercado Pago, is a relevant player in the POS market in different countries in the region, selling more than one million terminals during the third quarter of 2021. Redelcom will join the Mercado Libre and Mercado Pago ecosystem and its successful business model.
