Before I get started - Can we talk to an expert at Visa

We are thinking about using the Visa API to extend the capabilities of our first growing mobile payments app. We also already have a potential Bank to sponsor us in production. However, before we commit time and write any code we were wondering if its possible to speak to an expert to (i) Review our solution and advise , especially on compliance issues (ii) Advise on the non technical proccesses , especially going live in our region/country. Thank you

Hello 

Thank you for your reply. We would like to use the Visa Direct API but in a closed loop scenario. Together with our sponsoring bank we shall issue co-branded Prepaid Visa Cards to our customers. The functionality we require is below 

 

#

Function

Description

1

Get Balance

Get balance on users Prepaid Acccount

2

Credit

Deposit funds onto users Prepaid Account 

3

Debit

Remove funds from the wallet e.g. to Buy Airtime, Buy Tickets, Shop online etc

4

Transfer

Transfer funds from one Xente Account holder to another Xente Account holder (Closed loop)

5

Notifications

Get notifications when users account is debited or credited 

 

Looking at the API, it has all the functionality other than Get Balance. Again, we are only interested in having this functionality with cards we issue. 
Please advise what we need to do to make this happen 

On another note, do you have functionality for issuing Virtual Prepaid Cards

Hello @arwaakatungu

 

Please review the Visa Direct documentation via this link - https://developer.visa.com/capabilities/visa_direct/docs 

 

In particular, see the top few paragraphs that are shaded that discuss the requirements to use Visa Direct. 

 

After having read the documentation, if you meet those requirements, then please click through the link in those paragraphs to the Visa Direct Program Implementation Questionnaire, fill it out, and submit to the email address listed on that form. Once you submit the questionnaire then the Visa Direct team will follow up with an update. 

 

Let me know if you have any additional questions. 

 

Thank you, 

Vaibhav
