Visa Expands Access to Payment Services Through AWS

by April 29, 2024

Payments giant Visa announced that it has joined the AWS Partner Network (APN) to improve global digital payment solutions.

This partnership enables easier integration of select Visa services for its partners and clients, including cloud-native fintech companies, through AWS technologies.

Visa aims to make digital transactions quicker, simpler, and more secure by offering specific payment services on the AWS Marketplace, which reaches over 300,000 global customers.

Among the initial offerings is Visa Cross-Border Solutions, designed to simplify global transactions and currency management for businesses.

This collaboration marks a major move for Visa to support its clients within the cloud, offering secure connections through AWS Privatelink to VisaNet, Visa’s extensive processing network.

Furthermore, Visa has joined AWS Activate, a programme supporting startups with resources to accelerate their development.

Visa has further enhanced its support for fintech companies through the Visa Fintech Fast Track programme.

Fintech clients enrolled in this program and verified by AWS as eligible can receive up to $100,000 in AWS Activate credits to help jumpstart their growth and reduce their time to market.

Many startups running on AWS have already seen substantial benefits from Visa programmes like Visa Ready and Fintech Fast Track, bolstering their development and operational capabilities.
