Accelerating electronic payments with Visa

Visa Inc. and JPMorgan Chase & Co. announced that the companies have agreed to a letter of intent for a new and expanded 10-year renewable partnership agreement. The partnership is designed to accelerate the growth of electronic payments, deliver added value to merchants and provide a better experience for cardholders.

Under terms of the planned deal, JPMorgan Chase will launch Chase Merchant Services, a payments platform powered by Visa that JPMorgan Chase will use to create more differentiated experiences for its merchants and cardholders. The platform will process transactions initiated with JPMorgan Chase-issued Visa cards at merchants that JPMorgan Chase enrolls in Chase Merchant Services.

As part of the agreement, JPMorgan Chase also will shift additional credit and debit card volume to Visa, driving more transactions on the Visa network.

William Sheedy, Group President, Americas, Visa Inc said: “As technology drives the evolution of the payments industry there are more opportunities to deliver value for merchants and cardholders at the point-of-sale. Visa is focused on innovating to allow clients of all sizes to differentiate based on their strategy, priorities and customer needs. This effort with JPMorgan Chase is one example of Visa’s increased flexibility and desire to partner with financial institution and merchant clients to provide greater service to cardholders through tailored and value-added solutions.”
