How Does Visa Direct Work?

Jan 7, 2021

You can access our Visa Direct service (AKA VoPay Istant) through our developer-friendly API or payment portal to send real-time payouts to almost any Visa Debit cardholder in Canada 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Last quarter global Visa Debit spend was up 20% to $1.2 trillion while credit was down 9%, to $1.1 trillion. 

There are several use cases for the payment service including:

Earned Wage Access: Employers can send real-time payouts of earned wages to workers’ eligible debit cards 

Lending: Lenders can offer a real-time loan funding option and exceed customer expectations when they need money quickly

Insurance: Optimize the insurance claim payout process and maximize customer satisfaction 

Gig Economy: Companies can give gig workers the option to receive speedy payouts for their work 24/7/365

Security: All Visa Direct transactions are processed via VisaNet, protected by Visa’s multi-layered security.

Fully Customizable: Visa Direct can be fully integrated through the VoPay API for a seamless end user experience to fit your brand needs so you stay top of mind.
