Global payment solution provider, Safecharge, has been granted principal membership status for merchant acquiring by VISA Europe.
The agreement with Visa Europe, the association of European banks that operate the Visa brand of electronic cards, allows Safecharge to process Visa transactions for merchants in the UK and across Europe. The membership status is expected to reduce the company’s direct acquiring cost structure, accelerate the merchant acquisition process and improve its competitive position for winning new business.
