Visa B2B Connect helps remove friction and time spent on cross-border corporate payments by facilitating transactions from the bank of origin directly to the beneficiary bank. The network drastically increases visibility into the transaction flow, giving buyers and suppliers an opportunity to track the status of payments from the origin bank to the destination bank in near real time.
Visa B2B Connect can also significantly reduce the time to settle funds – from potentially weeks to one to two days. It gives corporate financial institutions and their customers a clear view of fees associated with a payment, helping companies better manage their cash flow. In order to begin transacting through Visa B2B Connect, participating financial institutions around the world can connect in two ways – directly to the network or through Visa’s hub partners.
Visa B2B Connect’s unique digital identity feature tokenizes an organization’s sensitive business information, such as banking details and account numbers, giving them a unique identifier that can be used to facilitate transactions on the network. Visa B2B Connect’s digital identity feature will transform the way information is exchanged in business-to-business cross-border transactions.
“Differentiated capabilities of Visa B2B Connect and our work with early adopters is truly set to transform the speed, security and profitability for the entire ecosystem,” added Koenigsberg.
“Infosys is looking forward to partnering with Visa to create new payment flows for Commercial Payments,” said
