The mVisa is an agile solution that allows Merchants around the world to immediately accept Digital Payments from their customers. It’s a mobile solution which is a low cost acceptance solution affectionately known as QR Code Payment solution. Merchants only need to display one QR Code at the storefront or through the acquiring bank’s mobile application. The flexible nature of QR Codes and the fact that Merchants do not need to invest in POS Point Of Sale infrastructure has (and is) allowing VISA & its partners to offer incentive solutions that eliminate friction for consumers who want and need to pay for goods and services around the world.
mVisa aids in overcoming Merchant infrastructure issues as it allows consumers to use their mobile phones to make cashless purchases at Merchant outlets, pay bills remotely and even send money to friends and family members by securely linking their VISA debit, credit or prepaid account to the mVisa application. It digitalizes the underlying account and allows consumers to transfer funds from their account to the Retailer’s account reliably and securely by scanning a QR CODE.
