News : Visa Cuts a Deal with TrialPay
Aug 29, 2014 -- Visa has cut a deal to license TrialPay’s transactional advertising platform for a loyalty and offers program, the card brand announced in a Visa Tumblr post.
Visa invested in TrialPay as part of a Series C funding round in January 2012. But Visa has no plans to buy out other investors, and TrialPay will remain independent.
A team from TrialPay, however, will join Visa as full-time employees to work on the loyalty platform that Visa hopes will "become a strategic and competitive differentiator for Visa," according to Ramon Martin, SVP Merchant Sales & Solutions at the card brand.
TrialPay’s technology places relevant offers around online transactions, and uses transactional data to show the most relevant offers and ads to consumers.
