Authentication Method for Visa Direct Payouts

Security and Authentication Requirements

All of the Visa Direct Payout APIs use Two-Way SSL (Mutual SSL) authentication and channel encryption, which requires you to provide a user name and password as well as install an X509 security certificate issued by Visa. Test credentials can be obtained online in your Project Dashboard for sandbox testing. Production credentials will be supplied to you as part of production on-boarding.
