If you’re a service provider, this message will certainly be of interest to you.
As many of you will know, the process of registering as an agent is an important step in being recognised by Visa Europe as a PCI compliant service provider. Historically, this has meant finding an existing Visa member organisation (such as an Acquirer) to sponsor your registration. That’s not always been possible, especially where there’s no Acquirer relationship in place.
A new Visa web site, https://www.visamerchantagents.com/ is now available for you to self-register. We strongly recommend all (Level 1 or Level 2) service providers take a look at the new registration site and consider registration if they’ve not already done so.
