Cessation of payment services by Wirecard entities in Singapore


In light of regulatory actions by the Monetary Authority of Singapore, Visa has suspended payment authorisations for Wirecard in Singapore on 1 October 2020. This means there may be some disruption for Visa cardholders when transacting at a small number of merchants that use Wirecard services in Singapore. Visa is working with its clients and partners to support affected merchants and cardholders.
