Aura is a local Brazilian credit card and is one of the most popular online card payment methods in Brazil along with HiperCard and Elo. As well as enabling standard one-click online payments, Aura also allows consumers to pay in instalments. The merchant is paid instantly, but the customer can choose to pay via Aura in 3, 6, 9 or 12 instalments. The card also enables recurring online payments.

Other local payment cards in Brazil include UnionPay, Cabal and Cencosud.
