- World-class sponsorships
What steps do I take to get a credit card with my company name on it?
First, you need to choose a financial institution to issue a co-branded card for your program. Visa does not actually issue the cards. We offer a list of issuing financial institutions that have authorized Visa to include their names for new business opportunities. Please contact one or more of these issuers to explain your program idea. Once an issuer accepts your proposal, you and that issuer will work together to develop a product.
Winning with sponsorships
With Visa, you can add impact to your co-branded card by leveraging the power of these prestigious Visa sponsorships:
Co-branded cards use reward programs and special offers, such as rebates, discounts and gift certificates, to attract new customers and generate loyalty among existing customers.

Co-branding with Visa lets you make the biggest impression possible, and that can mean a more successful program. The profit potential of co-branding is being realized in many industries, including:
Visa also offers affinity programs, which are generally sponsored by nonprofit organizations, professional and fraternal societies, or lifestyle associations. The affinity program sponsor receives a percentage of the revenues generated by usage of the affinity card, so cardholders have a very tangible way to support the organization.
