A hidden opportunity
Visa cardholders expect to be able to use their cards whenever they want and wherever they are — including for mail and telephone orders and shopping on-line on the Internet. Millions of them already use their Visa cards each day to make purchases by telephone or from their computer, buying items ranging from the weekly grocery shop to a new outfit or a holiday abroad. In fact, Visa cards are already one of the most popular ways to pay on-line.
By accepting Visa cards when the cardholder is not present, you can significantly expand your customer base and your profits.
We aim to ensure that the same high levels of security and convenience are available when cards are not present as when a transaction is made in a traditional store. We have even created a service that validates Internet transactions and guarantees payment to you, making the process safer for everyone involved and helping to increase shoppers’ confidence in buying on-line.
