Getting Started with Visa B2B Connect

Things to Know

The Visa B2B Connect APIs can be used in the sandbox by any developer with a registration and upon acceptance of terms and conditions. The sandbox does not have Visa network connectivity, so validating the receipt of a pull funds, push funds, or reverse funds transfer cannot occur in the sandbox.

You can use the API explorer provided in the API Reference section to understand the usage of the APIs in the Sandbox.

How Does It Work?

B2B Connect Overview
  1. Commercial Customer A initiates a payment funded from their account at Bank A.
  2. Bank A (Originating Bank) submits the payment instruction to the Visa B2B Connect Service.
  3. Bank A funds Visa's settlement accounts in settlement currency before the close of the settlement window.
  4. Visa B2B Connect validates the transaction and cofirms with the Originating Bank.
  5. Visa B2B Connect notifies Bank B (Beneficiary Bank) by sending a payment remittance notification.
  6. Visa B2B Connect delivers payment to Bank B. Note: Beneficiary Bank may use finds as liquidity on the Visa B2B Connect network.
