With Direct Payouts, Visa can push payments to cards and accounts cross border

Push payments are the reverse of how we think credit cards work. Instead of pulling customer funds to pay a merchant, push payments have merchants sending money out to the cardholder. Visa Direct is a major player in the space and the payment firm is now announcing Visa Direct Payouts, which allows Visa clients and partners to push payments to cards and accounts for cross border payments. With this new addition, Visa Direct now provides multi-rail access to 5 billion cards and accounts combined across more than 200 geographies, supporting 160 currencies.

Bill Sheley, svp, global head, Visa Direct joins me on the podcast to discuss the launch of Visa Direct Payouts. We talk about the challenges and opportunities of sending money cross border and how Visa is positioning itself in this market. Bill gives us an update on Visa Direct and how the ecosystem has grown over the past year and where it’s headed in the future.
