Telefónica Digital and Visa Europe have agreed a wide ranging strategic partnership to drive new business opportunities within mobile commerce across Telefónica’s European footprint. The agreement will see both companies co-invest in the development of innovative products and services in areas such as mobile wallet, contactless payments (NFC), acquirer services for mobile point of sale, and merchant offers.
The agreement builds on Telefónica and Visa Europe’s existing relationship in markets such as the UK and Ireland, formalising it at a Europe-wide level and establishing Visa Europe as Telefónica’s preferred partner for the issuance of branded payments cards and the development of related mobile payment services.

It combines Visa’s scale and expertise in payments with Telefónica’s European mobile footprint, strong consumer brands and existing experience in mobile payments. The partnership will also provide Telefónica with access to expertise within the network of Visa’s partner companies.
