Contis Partners With Visa on Fast-track for Fintechs

Contis Group has launched a fast-track programme in partnership with Visa, providing entrepreneurs and start-ups with access to payment cards and banking capabilities in as little as four weeks.

The programme has been created to allow new businesses and fintechs to bring ideas to market in the shortest possible time. For example, Contis says that fintechs can go live with a proof of concept and access to up to 1,000 customer accounts in as little as four weeks.

Fast-track is powered by Contis’ end-to-end banking and processing platform and its API technology stack. It is available to UK-based start-ups who meet eligibility criteria and benefit from access to Visa’s payment network. The full agency banking solution offers contactless and Chip & PIN Visa debit and prepaid cards.

This initiative is designed to drive innovation and disruption by removing the traditional barriers faced by start-ups in banking and payments. The programme will enable businesses to test new concepts in a secure and fully API-configurable environment supported by Contis’ Know Your Customer (KYC) protocols and customer service.
