As a Visa Direct Preferred Partner, Encoded is able to offer instant peer-to-peer payments via its Gateway Services API, as a well as being able to leverage the expertise and insight of the Visa Direct team to provide an exemplary money movement solution to customers.

Utilising Visa Direct’s solution enables us to offer a payout and peer-to-peer payment solution at the forefront of technology that solves many of the issues of legacy banking systems by providing instant money movement, lower and more transparent costs, and greater security.”
