- Authorization: Once Visa Direct confirms that the transaction is legitimate and there are sufficient funds, it provides the authorization to proceed.
- Transfer: Visa Direct then securely transfers the funds to the recipient's Visa card, regardless of their location, ensuring near-instant access to the money.
