Paraguay’s level of Internet use is increasing. Local credit card operators and e-commerce operators are common in Asuncion and second-tier cities. Some sites, such as supermarkets and electronic e-retailer websites, are often used by Paraguayans overseas as an option to transfer resources to their relatives, sending goods or “credit coupons” instead of money.

In addition to commercial operations, a company can use the Internet in Paraguay with good results for other business purposes, such as Customer Relationship Management (CRM), on-line help desks, and advertising.  Paraguayans are more and more using “Tigo Pay” (through the Tigo telecommunications company) when transferring funds electronically; it is growing in popularity as a way to conduct transactions without having to carry cash.
