Visa Credit Card AppVisas Credit Card App
Visas is issuing APIs to give consumers complete card transaction controls.
Visas provides credit card publishers with an Application Programming Interface (API) that enables clients to define expenditure checks, obtain transactions warnings and provisionally suspend account balances with on/off functionality. Available through the company's recently introduced Visa Developer platforms, the Application Programming Interface (API) enables merchants to offer card holders a variety of customer-specific management functions either over the Internet or via the user's portable devices.
Spend control can be implemented on different transactions type, date range or total card spend, while on/off and text or email transactions warnings are designed to add an extra level of safety for the user. Animation of Visa Vimeo on Vimeo from Visa Consumers Movement Control.

NatWest- and RBS-Apps enable mobile-to-visa card payment.
Milions of NatWest and Royal Bank of Scotland clients will be able to make payment to anyone with a Visa card using their cell handset. As of today, clients using the free NatWest/RBS pay your contacts feature can submit up to 100 to card holders by typing their number.
It is currently available to NatWest clients in England and Wales and to RBS clients in Scotland, with full deployment scheduled after Easter. This step takes place one weeks after many of the Group's 17 million clients were unable to login to an on-line account, make withdrawals, wire funds or use their credit card for shopping (see our RBS MSE News Story).
In October last year, NatWest and RBS discontinued the Get Cash-function in their cell phones applications after the company was attacked by scammers (see the history of RBS and NatWest suspension of MSE News payment apps). It is available for downloading as an upgraded package to the banks' current Android, iPhone and BlackBerry applications. An improved Windows iPhone app will be available shortly.
NatWest and RBS are the only ones who can use it, but they can send funds to anyone with a Visa card, regardless of who they go bankrupt with - you don't need their applications to get them. It is free to send funds via your contact account, although a total of 100 can be sent per deal per tag.
However, there are currently no plans to expand the services to Ulster Bank clients belonging to the same group or to non-NatWest/RBS clients. As Ben Green, NatWest's Director of Mobility and RBS, says, "Our clients can pay quickly and easily without knowing the recipient's postcode and number.
"Encouraging even more to make the most of our mobility, this secure and practical resource will help our clients get to banks anytime, anywhere."
