V Pay


V Pay, issued by Visa Europe, functions as a debit card within Europe’s Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA) and competes directly with the Mastercard Maestro debit card.

V Pay is uniquely tailored to cater to the European market and typically isn’t issued or accepted outside of European countries, with certain exceptions for select overseas territories.

Beginning in 2019, the V Pay system has been undergoing a phased transition in favor of Visa Debit.
