Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) is re-defining the payment world's future.

What is IoT?

The Internet of Things is a world of interconnected smart devices. By 2020, approximately 20 billion devices (source: Gartner Inc., 2017) will be connected to the internet. Visa Ready provides a path to providing secure payment functionality to cars, wearables, household appliances, retail environments, and cities. In this growing ecosystem, device manufacturers can look to approved Token Service Providers (TSPs) to enable tokenized payment functionality to IoT devices.
