Ordering Product Toolkits


To order Product Testing Materials, your company must be registered with VTP and have an active license for the applicable toolkit. You must be a VTP site subscriber.

  • If your company is not already registered, there are two VTP options that allow licensing, which provide different levels of access to Visa materials: Technology Registration or Product Testing Materials Only Registration. Please see Registering and Licensing to determine the option that meets your business needs. Note: The one-time VTP Administrative Fees do not apply to the Product Testing Materials Only Registration.
  • If your company is registered and you are not a subscriber, please contact your company’s VTP administrator to be added as a subscriber. You must then login and accept the VTP site license.
  • If you are a subscriber and your company does not have an active license for the toolkit you wish to order, you must first view and accept the click license for the applicable testing material type.

Once licensed, the Testing Materials license status will show as "Active" and you may initiate the ordering process by clicking “Order Toolkit”:

  • You will be presented with an order form and asked to confirm payment. Shipping and Handling varies based on shipping location and will be applied to the amount due.
