Disbursements

Payments have never been faster. Send funds quickly and easily from one consumer to another, or from a business to a consumer, using the eligible Visa debit or reloadable prepaid card consumers already carry. Make digital disbursements to existing card products through push payments to an eligible Visa debit or reloadable prepaid card – whether physical or virtual.

Disbursements can also be set up as a recurring solution – for payroll or benefits, for example – with your end users able to receive their pay on an eligible debit or reloadable prepaid card.

Push Payments

Push payment transactions allow funds to be sent to and from any eligible Visa debit or reloadable prepaid card. Funds are posted to a deposit or omnibus account via the Primary Account Number of the card. In addition, Visa offers the Visa Push Payment Gateway Service to enable push-to-card capabilities for non-Visa cards in the U.S. and Canada.

Things to Consider

To enable fast payments to over one billion cards globally, you will need a Visa Direct Partner. A Visa Direct Partner can help you find an acquirer.
