Verve and Discover Global Network Launch Verve Global Card

Leading payments technology, Verve, and Discover Global Network, the payments brand of Discover, have come together to launch the Verve Global Card. This means that cardholders will now have the ability to use their Verve Global Cards on the Discover Global Network which provides acceptance in more than 190 countries and territories. This will also facilitate new international and cross border transaction capabilities for Verve Global Card customers, meeting the needs of its increasingly global customer base.

The first transaction occurred in New York City, where senior executives from First Bank, Access Bank and Fidelity Bank purchased various items from Swarovski using their Verve Global Card on the Discover Global Network.

Holders of the new card can make payments outside Africa on the Discover Global Network which includes anywhere Discover, Diners Club International and Pulse and affiliate network cards are accepted. Verve Global Card also delivers additional benefits to cardholders including broad reward and loyalty schemes; benefits that are available both locally and internationally.

Mitchell Elegbe,
Interswitch Group Managing Director, commented on the announcement: “The
agreement with Discover Global Network will enable Verve to compete with other
global card offerings, providing cardholders with an enhanced customer
experience when transacting globally outside Nigeria. Creating a solution which
facilitates international payments for our consumers will help to eliminate
existing barriers and simplify the process when transacting abroad.” 

“It is important to us that we are working with groups around the world to extend acceptance for their cardholders,” said Ricardo Leite, senior vice president of international markets at Discover. “At Discover, we recognize the importance of being able to use your card of choice no matter where you are travelling.”

Mike Ogbalu III,
Verve International Divisional Chief Executive Officer, also commented on the
announcement saying, “The launch of the Verve Global Card, provides consumers
with the ability to transact globally across the US and other countries,
addressing challenges that many Nigerians have experienced while travelling
abroad. Our partnership with Discover Global Network will help us to optimize
the overall experience of every Verve Global card holder by guaranteeing
consistent and efficient payment solutions regardless of where they are in the
world”.
