Visa to Continue to Offer BPN to its Clients, Helping Businesses Streamline the B2B Digital Payments Process

HAMILTON TOWNSHIP, NJ – July 11, 2024 – Billtrust, a B2B order-to-cash and digital payments market leader, announced that it has extended its collaboration with Visa, a world leader in digital payments, to support its Business Payments Network (BPN). Visa will continue to offer BPN access to its financial institution clients to streamline the B2B digital payments process for their corporate customers.

Launched in 2018 in collaboration with Visa, BPN seamlessly links suppliers to their buyers through connectivity to their preferred bank and payables providers, radically simplifying payment acceptance through straight-through processing of virtual card payments and capture of all available remittance data. Suppliers benefit from eliminating manual virtual card processing and optimized acceptance costs, while buyers can transact using their preferred payment method. In addition, banks and accounts payable (AP) providers benefit from transparency regarding supplier virtual card acceptance and preferences.

“We continue to be encouraged by BPN’s volume growth and potential and our ability to offer it to clients,” said Veronica Fernandez, SVP, Head of Visa Commercial Solutions North America. “The network's expansion and innovative features underscore our commitment to empowering financial institutions and fintech partners with essential 'last mile' capabilities focused on reducing friction and driving incremental payment volume through this mutually beneficial B2B payment method.”

“Visa’s continued collaboration with Billtrust is a testament to our mutual belief in the power of BPN to expand the B2B payment ecosystem through continued ergonomic and economic support of virtual card acceptance, driving frictionless and more cost-efficient acceptance,” said Nick Izquierdo, Executive Vice President, Payments, Billtrust. “BPN’s critical infrastructure connects hundreds of suppliers and hundreds of thousands of buyers while facilitating billions of dollars' worth of payments at exceptional straight-through processing rates.”
