Featured Service Providers: Early Adopters of PCI DSS v3.2

The Visa Global Registry of Service Providers

The Registry allows service providers to broadcast their compliance with Visa Inc. rules, industry security standards and to promote their services to potential clients worldwide. Clients and Merchants should reference the site regularly as part of their due diligence process, and should only use service providers that are listed on the Registry for outsourcing their payment-related services. If a merchant elects to use a service provider they find on the Registry, they must notify their acquiring bank prior to using the service provider to ensure their acquirer registers the service provider as a Merchant Servicer. Clients must register all service providers with Visa prior to use of their services even if the service provider is already listed on the Registry.

The Registry contains service provider information such as company name, company website, corporate headquarter country, region(s) of operation, types of services offered and applicable industry standard/security requirement compliance validation date.

Agents are important players in the development of acceptance infrastructure, new payment channels, and securing the promise of a trusted payment system. Visa® is committed to drive transparency through information sharing and awareness of agents' risk profile.

The Visa Global Registry of Service Providers is the payment industry's designated source for information on registered and compliant agents that provide payment-related services to Visa clients and merchants.When you are listed, you help secure the promise of a trusted payment system by highlighting your investment in data security and the protection of cardholder data.

Please note: As specified in the Visa Rules (ID 0025895), before registering an agent, a Member must complete and validate compliance with the applicable regional due diligence standards. A Member with a registered Third Party Agent must perform an annual review of the Third Party Agent to confirm ongoing compliance with applicable regional due diligence standards. In certain instances, as with VisaNet Processors, for example, Visa performs preliminary due diligence only.
