Visa accelerates innovation of global money movement with new Visa Direct Preferred Partner program

Innovation has made it possible to move money in near real time, but traditional processes and silos still stand in the way of businesses being able to simplify and enhance how they pay and get paid, both domestically and across borders. 

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. 

By joining the program, Visa Direct Preferred Partners around the world can take advantage of the following benefits:
