Visa Direct (also see here) seems to be a means of transferring money (almost instantly) to another Visa card.

Which banks support this service? I use several major and popular banks, and none of them seem to offer this "transfer to any other Visa cardholder" service.

Background: I was able to us this to clear some money out of my soon-to-be-closed Google Wallet account to my U.S. Bank checking account. The incoming transfer appeared as a pending transaction on my U.S. Bank statement as "Visa Direct". A previous cleared transaction appeared as "Visa Direct Goo*xxxxxx" (where xxxxxx is my name).

  • @keshlam Really? Why would that be? This is about money transfers - there's no mention of purchases here at all. – CJBS May 9 '16 at 5:25

    You're "shopping" for banks with a particular service. You can probably research this as easily as we can. I'd suggest contacting Visa. – keshlam May 9 '16 at 5:27


Citizens Bank of Weir might allow you to do this, their experimentation in speeding up bank transfers was pushing money over the debit card network.
