Pay a supplier with just basic details (name, country, postal code, etc)
Is there a way to be able to transfer funds to a visa supplier account without first knowing their PAN? I.e can I use some kind of matching api to possibly first match against the name and location of a supplier (like the supplier matching api) and get back the PAN in order to transfer funds to them? I would like similar behavior to interac e-transfer whereby for instance you can send money to an email.
We don't have an API on Visa Developer that fits your business use case, unfortunately. However, if you are looking for APIs to develop solutions to pay suppliers, please check out the B2B Virtual Account Payment Method. The B2B Virtual Account Payment Method involves a suite of APIs which allows you to use virtual accounts to automate the process of paying your suppliers.
