Access all the solutions you need

Visa Platform Connect gives our acquirer partners a single, rapid, secure connection to the Visa Acceptance Platform and everything it offers: from modular payment services to a robust partner ecosystem. This composable set of resources is available to help you innovate and deliver market-leading payment solutions at scale for your merchants. It also handles payment processing in multiple currencies to Visa and other major card networks and routes payment card authorisations from merchants directly to VisaNet and payment capture files back to acquirers for settlement.

For our technology solution provider partners, Visa Platform Connect simplifies access to multiple acquirers—accelerating expansion into new segments or regions. With integrated access to VisaNet for authorisation and capture services, you can become a clearing and settlement processor as part of your expanded offering.

Compliance you can count on
