The way we shop and pay is quickly transforming. At the heart of this revolution is Visa.
As consumers explore the growing list of digital alternatives to physical wallets, they’ve entered a world in which connectivity and commerce are not just combined, but ubiquitous. At Visa, we’ve been preparing for this future by expanding the reach of over 3.1 billion cards worldwide* to the billions of connected devices that currently populate consumers’ lives.
We envision a future where payments are conveniently brokered by the newest connected cars, wearables and appliances, and powered by the seamlessness of automation and the contextual relevance of machine learning. It’s a future that not only promises to stoke the engine of commerce, but also leverage this newfound connectivity and contextual intelligence to seed unique experiences.
That’s why we’re collaborating with our clients and partners to create new and innovative ways to pay for the things consumers love. We do this through a global network of Innovation Centers and by providing access to our open and flexible platform, Visa Developer, which will help our clients and partners more easily meet today’s insatiable consumer appetite for innovation in digital commerce.
Today, our vision already provides payment solutions across a constellation of connected devices around the world. By 2020, Gartner projects this landscape will rapidly expand to almost 21 billion devices**. As we continue to expand, evolve and explore in anticipation of what’s next, we’d love to have you along for the journey.
