Visa has inked partnerships with FIS and Jack Henry & Associates to deploy Visa Direct for person-to-person (P2P) payments, and Stripe, Hyperwallet and Ingo Money for faster business and government disbursements.
Visa Direct is a card-based platform that can deliver funds in real-time1 to more than 200 million Visa debit cards in the United States, as well as non-Visa branded debit cards, for ubiquitous reach to any consumer or small business with a debit card. Funds are transferred into the customer’s bank account without the need for complicated checking account and routing numbers.
FIS has integrated Visa Direct into People Pay, its P2P payments service for financial institutions. Offered as a white-label solution, banks can use their existing integration with FIS to easily leverage the card-based feature for their customers in online and mobile banking.
Jack Henry & Associates, a provider of integrated technology solutions and payment processing services for financial institutions, has partnered with Visa to deliver faster P2P payments to a recipient’s Visa debit card. The integration of JHA Payment Solutions with Visa Direct will enable recipients to receive funds on the same day or one day sooner based on the institution’s funding model.
Visa Direct is also making business disbursements to consumers and businesses faster and easier. Stripe’s new Instant Payouts feature, which allows drivers, couriers and other sellers in online marketplaces to get paid immediately, is leveraging Visa Direct. Many marketplaces are already using Stripe’s service including Lyft, Care.com and goPanache, among others.
In addition, Ingo Money, a leader in real-time push payments technology, will leverage Visa Direct to power its faster payments solution, Ingo Instant Payments. The solution is an API-based, turnkey push payments platform and gateway that provides merchants, businesses, governments and financial institutions with an easy to integrate, low-cost solution to disburse funds to consumers, service providers, employees and more. Through this collaboration, Visa and Ingo Money will bring to market a solution that greatly reduces the friction of implementing real-time funds disbursements.
Available through a comprehensive Visa Direct API library, financial institutions and technology partners can quickly build real-time payment solutions through a feature-rich suite of web services on the Visa Developer Platform.
