Visa and Swift collaborate to improve international B2B payments

Visa and Swift have launched a strategic partnership to facilitate international business-to-business (B2B) payments. This collaboration aims to improve communication across their vast networks, which will help several small businesses that frequently conduct international business.

As part of the collaboration, unveiled in Toronto at the annual Sibos conference, Visa will use Swift-developed tools to speed up and improve the certainty of cross-border money transfers. This features Swift Payment Pre-validation to enable upfront checks of Visa B2B Connect payments, preventing needless delays by identifying issues before the payment is initiated. The networks also intend to use high-speed Swift GPI capabilities and tracking data to improve end-to-end transaction visibility. Additionally, Visa will migrate its connection to Swift through Alliance Cloud, a scalable, secure cloud-based channel for connecting to Swift’s network, as well as messaging services, standards, and solutions.

The current state of foreign payments can present several difficulties for small business owners, including unforeseen delays, a lack of transparency in the transaction processes, and even payment problems. The latest partnership aims to address and alleviate those pain points immediately.

Furthermore, thanks to the cutting-edge cloud-based channel, financial institutions will have more routing possibilities, giving customers real-time status information.

What does this mean for small business owners?

To begin with, a more integrated financial ecosystem enables quicker, more dependable, and transparent cross-border transactions. Businesses may now use Swift’s unmatched infrastructure and the cutting-edge security and effectiveness of Visa’s B2B Connect, ensuring that international transactions go as smoothly as possible.

For small-business owners looking to succeed in a globalized environment, this alliance is more than simply news—it’s a beacon of development, promising a future of enhanced cross-border transactional experiences.
