Access Bank has partnered Visa to enhance efficiency of cross-border business-to-business payments for the bank’s corporate, commercial and Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) customers by adopting the Visa B2B Connect platform to send and receive payments to and from 110 countries worldwide.

Visa B2B Connect is a payment platform that will allow Access Bank’s business customers to send money faster, efficiently, and securely from Nigeria to multiple markets across the globe, facilitating seamless business operations.
