Visa Inc. is an American multinational financial services corporation, operating from their headquarters in Foster City, California.

The company facilitates the transfer of funds electronically all over the world, but does not issue cards, set credit rates or fees; rather it offers financial institutions Visa branded payment products.
Visa payments at online casinos
Visa's credit card made its original appearance in 1958 as Bank Americard, part of Bank of America's credit card program, and was renamed Visa in 1976. It represented the first successful implementation of an all purpose credit card, a product in dire demand at the time. According to The Nielson Report in 2008, Visa held a 38.3% market share of the credit card marketplace and 60.7% of the debit card marketplace in the United States.
Visa credit cards work like all other credit cards; i.e. you are able to make payments up to a credit limit set on your card. The online casino collects the payment from the card issuer, usually your bank, to whom you then repay the amount. At the end of the month you are issued a card statement, where you can choose to pay off the whole amount due or pay in monthly instalments.
Visa uses a tool called "Verified by Visa" to determine whether the card number that has been entered online is valid and that there is sufficient credit; whereupon your transaction is approved by Visa. When purchasing at online casinos a Card Not Present (CNP) transaction is used, as you are unable to enter your pin or sign a credit card slip. Since fraud is possible this way, merchants pay higher rates for these kinds of transactions and the security on the transfer is higher from the financial service company.
