With V.me, consumers simply need to enter a single username and password which eliminates the need to enter personal details across multiple merchant websites. The digital wallet enables consumers to secure store their existing Visa and other payment cards, store and use multiple shipping addresses, set transaction alerts for Visa cards based on spending thresholds and other criteria, and over time opt-in to additional features.

Visa’s new digital wallet also offer a number of benefits to merchants including delivery of a consistent consumer shopping experience, decrease shopping cart abandonment with the use of an easy and streamlined checkout process, reliable and secure payment facility and increase customer engagement with opt-ins over time.

Australians will be able to enrol to V.me free of charge to the service’s website that will soon go live. Once enrolled, users will be able to use their device’s web browser to shop online or use compatible NFC-enabled devices to purchase items in person at a local store. Visa’s long history of handling sensitive transaction information is reflected on V.me which uses industry standard encryption and multilayer authentication.

Visa transactions made through V.me are protected by Visa’s zero liability policy which according to the company guarantees that Visa cardholders in Australia won’t be held responsible for fraudulent or unauthorised transactions.
