Visa opens resource portal for fintechs

26 septembrie 2019

Visa is looking to cosy up to fintech firms through the launch of an online portal giving them „unprecedented” access to its technologies and network, accordinfg to finextra.com.

Visa estimates that some $17 trillion in consumer payments are still made with cash or cheques, and that there are 1.7 billion people around the world who are still outside of the formal financial sector.

This offers a huge opportunity for fintech upstarts with new forms of digital payments. To help these firms, and keep itself at the table, Visa has launched Visa Partner, a one-stop shop to simplify the process of working with the payments giant, helping fintechs more easily leverage its network, resources and tools.

The portal helps with fast digitised licensing; offers a comprehensive partner directory full of BIN sponsors, issuer processors, PCI, compliance and KYC and AML partners; and contains educational videos that teach the basics of payments and issuing.

“Fintechs are constantly innovating on our network and creating new types of payment flows that we think will continue to push the boundaries on better ways to pay, everywhere,” says Terry Angelos, global head, fintech, Visa. “Through the launch of Visa Partner, we are making it easier for fintechs to launch with Visa, enabling them to innovate faster and bring new payment flows to market.”

Tendinţele pe care le-am remarcat înainte de începerea pandemiei s-au accelerat pe perioada stării de urgenţă. Am văzut acest lucru ca o oportunitate, un tipping point pentru bancă. Post-pandemie nu avem cum sa ne întoarcem la comportamentul financiar pe care îl aveam până în februarie a.c. Relaţia românilor cu online-ul s-a schimbat. In plus, cardul fizic se va dematerializa. Vom asista la o scădere a cererii pentru cardurile fizice, respectiv la o creştere a preferinţei pentru componenta digitală a acestora.”
