That’s why Visa launched the Visa Direct Preferred Partner program, a global program designed to help partners of Visa’s real-time money movement network accelerate time to market (actual fund availability varies by receiving financial institution, receiving account type, region, and whether transaction is domestic or cross-border).

Through the program, Visa Direct Preferred Partners gain access to the tools and resources they need to help launch, sell, and grow their own real-time payment solutions. 

The program is currently live in North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America, with Central Europe, the Middle East, and Africa expected to follow in the coming months. It supports 25+ partners to date, including, Commerce Payments, Carat from Fiserv, Moneris Solutions, TabaPay and YellowPepper, among others.
