Visa Europe is a payments business, constantly working at the forefront of technology to introduce new, easier, and more secure payment options for our members and their customers.
We make money flow by enabling cardholders, retailers, and banks to do business with each other. We are the glue that binds the payments system together, bringing real value to cardholders, businesses, our members, and the economy.
As a membership association, we have a low-cost business model. We deliver services at cost to our members and are solely focused on their business priorities. We do not seek to make a profit – only to ensure that we are adequately capitalised as a business.
Visa cards are accepted at millions of places worldwide. We are the European payment system, wholly owned, controlled, and operated by our members – that’s banks and other payment service providers – from 36 countries across Europe.
