PF Podcast: PayPal-Visa Deal Is A Win-Win For Fintech

PFs, make sure your PayPal and Visa relationships are strong. PF giant PayPal and card brand titan Visa each struck digital gold from a partnership announced last week: PayPal can be used with contactless payments because it gets access to Visa’s tokenization feature, while Visa gets access to PayPal’s 188 million users and can sell issuers on a differentiator the other brands don’t have.


Rick Oglesby, principal of AZ Payments Group and a partner of Double Diamond Group, says on this week’s podcast that frictionless speedy payment processes drives the deal on both ends. PayPal has the signups to cut down a step at checkout while Visa has the rails to decrease the time it takes for PayPal to get paid by banks.
