Visa Ready Program

Visa is accelerating the introduction of innovative mobile payment solutions around the world.

The Visa Ready Program paves the way for emerging payment partners—such as mobile payments platform providers, mobile device manufacturers, technology partners, wallet providers, and software vendors—to more easily navigate the complexities of the payments ecosystem. The program provides innovators with a path for the certification of devices, software, solutions and services used to initiate or accept Visa payments as well as guidance and best practices on how to access the power and value of the Visa network.

The Visa Ready Program also provides access to Visa intellectual property such as Visa’s mobile payment specifications, software development kits (SDK’s), service and implementation guides, and best practices. It speeds approval of new payment solutions globally and streamlines the process to connect to and take advantage of Visa capabilities.

The Visa Ready Program makes it easier for financial institutions and merchants to adopt new, innovative payment methods that are fully approved by Visa and can help them drive growth by expanding the use and acceptance of electronic payments globally.
