Paymentology provides a next-generation payments platform and multi-cloud network to process any type of cards as a preferred issuer processor of Visa. Aligned to its cloud-first strategy, it is now the first issuer processor in Europe to achieve Visa Cloud Connect for its next-generation payments platform. According to Paymentology, this enables it to better serve its fintech, banking and telco clients by connecting to the global VCC network.

Fintechs, banks, and telcos often encounter obstacles such as the costs associated with local data centres, implementing specialised hardware, compliance with regional standards, and coordination with local partners. These challenges can slow down service deployment and hinder customer adoption.

The Paymentology and Visa Cloud Connect collaboration aims to directly tackle such challenges.

Enhancing security, accelerating service rollout, reducing delays

Paymentology’s next generation platform securely connects to VisaNet via cloud-based infrastructure. This offers a full suite of Visa products, eliminating data centre costs, streamlining transactions, and ensuring data security and high performance. This enhances security, accelerates service rollout, reduces delays in customer adoption, and ultimately delivers a more reliable, scalable, and secure platform.

As part of Paymentology’s cloud-first initiative, it will have VCC end point active zones across Europe to ensure ultimate uptime for its clients while more markets will be deployed as part of the ambitious collaborative roadmap.

Merusha Naidu, Global Head of Partnerships at Paymentology said“We have a long-standing relationship with Visa. We are delighted to fortify our cloud-first strategy by achieving Visa Cloud Connect certification. As the first issuer processor in Europe to have our infrastructure purely in the cloud, this move not only exemplifies our commitment to innovation but also establishes our platform as the epitome of flexibility, scalability, and security for our clients.
