He stated, “At Visa, we’re building the infrastructure to enable our partners to move money from any endpoint, to any endpoint, seamlessly. Broadening both our reach and number of endpoints, more than 8.5 billion today, is crucial to achieving that goal. Together with Thunes, we’re broadening the payment ecosystem by connecting to bank accounts, cards, and wallets, ultimately bringing more streamlined payouts capabilities to our joint clients.”

Floris de Kort, CEO of Thunes, highlighted the strategic significance of the partnership with Visa in the context of the ongoing digitization of payments.
