Announcing the landslide achievement, in the heart of NewYork City, we celebrated the first official VerveGlobal transaction on the American continent said Verve International on Linkedin.
Verve International added, we steeled ourselves for the challenges ahead and saw it as an opportunity to create a brave new world. We defied daunting odds, challenges and doubts to design and launch the first and till date, only indigenous successful global standard EMV payment card out of Africa. The story and spirit that underpin our Verve brand mirror the essence of Africa and the amazing possibilities we can achieve – if we believe!!!
The feature in the International market can be linked to the partnership of Verve Card with Discover Financial Service’s Global Network.
Verve International’s partnership with Discover Financial Services’ Global Network will enable Verve to compete with other global card offerings, providing cardholders with an enhanced customer experience when transacting globally outside Nigeria. Creating a solution which facilitates international payments for consumers will help to eliminate existing barriers and simplify the process of transacting abroad. Interswitch’s Divisional Chief Executive for Payment Cards & Tokens, Mike Ogbalu III, who also doubles as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for Verve International adduces the real merits of this milestone.
