If this amount is exceeded, the banks responsible for the operation may charge a fee and thus Pix will be paid. The forecast is that the new tools will be available in the second half of 2022. The user will log in to his account bank by cell phone and read a QR Code made available at the cashier. Once this is done, you must choose the amount you want to withdraw and approve the transaction. So, instead of receiving a product, the user will keep the cash in cash from the merchant. In relation to Pix Saque, the transaction is involved only for money. In the case of Pix Troco, the withdrawal is combined as a purchase. The user could purchase a product on the market and, when making the payment, would make a transaction with a higher value, receiving the difference back in cash.
