Through the Visa Fintech Fast Track Program, Skyscend is now able to expand its offerings and provide faster, more secure and streamlined payments to its customers.
Skyscend's participation in the Visa Fintech Fast Program enables us to modify several closed-loop systems limited to specific geographies in the B2B and P2P payment space.

Skyscend will be able to use the Visa Fintech Fast Track Program to automate B2B payments by introducing secure and simple-to-use virtual card payments. This initiative will help reduce the risk and workload involved in transferring funds from Skyscend Capital, Skyscend Inc.'s finance arm, to a customer's bank account. As virtual cards can be tracked and reissued if they expire prior to use, customers recognize it as a more secure and faster method of payment receipt. Skyscend will also be able to simplify international payments with Visa by utilizing Skyscend Cash, a digital wallet for peer-to-peer payments, to meet growing client preferences for personal finance. Businesses and consumers will now have access to cutting-edge payment tools that can help make their lives easier.
