Connecting consumers, merchants, government and financial institutions, Visa provides a secure and seamless payment experience in all corners of the world since 1958.

Visa provides financial institutions with Visa-branded payment products that they can use to offer credit, debit, prepaid and cash-access programs to their customers. Visa is one of the largest payment networks in the world processing payments.

Who needs Visa compliance?

Card vendors, issuers, and acquirers that wish to issue or accept Visa branded products need to comply with Visa’s rules and regulations.

What can UL do for me?

UL provides compliance & interoperability services for Visa-branded products. Our test tools which are equipped with the latest Visa specifications can be used for pre-certification and validation testing. The Visa payWave Test Tool (VpTT) is the only test tool that can be used to validate Visa payWave terminals. Furthermore, UL performs functional testing (Level 1 and Level 2) for both contact and contactless technologies; both for cards, terminals and mobile handsets. Additionally, we assist you with testing of HCE applications against Visa cloud-based payments specifications (penetration testing and security assessments).
