Agile implementation made possible through collaboration with Visa

“By working in a cross-functional team with Visa, our initial version was implemented in just four weeks. And we’re taking a similar approach to rolling out new Visa APIs.”

Helping accelerate the successful delivery of new digital services to customers

See how Hanseatic Bank focused on improving their mobile banking app with new features designed with Visa in a four-week incubation, prototyping and testing period—a new way of working that delivered “fantastic results.”

Here’s how Visa Transaction Controls help increase security and convenience in their mobile app

Customers access card-control features through the main menu by selecting card security (“Kartensicherheit”).


Once blocked, customers receive a notification and a block alert (“gesperrt”) banner appears at the top of their transaction history.

Customers can tap a switch to block their card (“Karte sperren”) or individually block ATM (“Geldautomaten”), e-commerce (“Online Einkäufe”) or cross-border (“Nutzung im Ausland”) transactions.

To unblock and enable their card or specific transactions, customers return to the card security screen and tap the appropriate switches.
