Visa Europe

Visa Logo

Visa Europe is a payments business, constantly working at the forefront of technology to introduce new, easier, and more secure payment options. It is a European membership organisation incorporated in the UK, partnering with Visa Inc., but operating as an entirely separate organisation.

Visa Europe’s contactless payments solution is fast, convenient and secure. Cardholders hold their Visa card up to a secure reader and a tiny antenna inside the card communicates with the terminal. Half a second later the sale is complete.

  • Faster service: With payment completed in less than a second, you can serve your customers faster, cut queues and reduce lost sales.
  • Simple for staff: Visa payWave eliminates the need to check signatures and reduces the need to request PINs, making payment simple for staff and quicker for customers.
  • Competitive edge: Accepting Visa payWave gives you a potential advantage over nearby stores that do not. Make the most of this to develop customer loyalty.
  • Reduce cash dependence: Counting, securely transporting and banking notes and coins can be expensive. Visa payWave can help break your cash dependency.
