Visa, the global leader in digital payments, today named PayMongo as the first Philippine partner to join Visa’s Rapid Seller Onboarding program. This program streamlines the onboarding process so that SMEs can join PayMongo and start accepting digital payments within three to five working days.
Visa’s Rapid Seller Onboarding program is aimed to remove pain points for both merchants and acquirers. Many issues such as limited feedback mechanisms and lack of digital touchpoints result in high costs for both merchants and acquirers.

“At Visa, we understand how important it is for SMEs to accept digital payments, especially during the pandemic,” said Dan Wolbert, Visa Country Manager for the Philippines and Guam. “As the country continues to face lockdowns and Filipinos are unable to shop in physical stores, we want to help small businesses to set up an online presence and start accepting digital payments so they can continue to operate and benefit from the growth in eCommerce. Through Visa’s Rapid Seller Onboarding program, we’re excited to be partnering with PayMongo to make it faster and easier for businesses to get online and start accepting digital payments.”
“Our Founders have always emphasized the value of providing a quick and seamless onboarding experience for our merchants, especially for small and medium enterprises. Our partnership with Visa for the Rapid Seller Onboarding program is another testament to that commitment. With this program, more small businesses can start accepting payments through the PayMongo payments platform sooner, rather than later. Our ultimate goal is to enable fully-compliant merchants to onboard in the quickest possible time, immediately helping them manage their customers’ payments and make their businesses grow,” said Abigail Valte, PayMongo Head of Compliance.
