The Payments Leader
It's hard to believe that the payment card industry is less than 30 years old. Just a few decades ago, shoppers could pay for their purchases solely with cash or checks. Today, payment cards have become an integral part of our lives. Whether we use them for credit or debit, for travel or at home, for purchases or at the ATM, owning a payment card opens up a whole new world of possibilities.
Visa International's over 21,000 member financial institutions have helped us become the world's leading full-service payment network. In a highly competitive industry, Visa's products and services, including Visa Classic card, Visa Gold card, Visa debit cards, Visa commercial cards and the Visa Global ATM Network, have emerged as the payment options of choice for consumers in 300 countries and territories.
