💵 Visa anuncia la adquisición de YellowPepper

May 20, 2022

Visa adquirirá YellowPepper, startup de servicios financieros con enfoque en LatAm 28 October 2020 La pasarela de pagos Visa Inc. anunció la firma de un acuerdo definitivo para adquirir por un monto no divulgado a YellowPepper , una fintech que apoya a instituciones financieras y startups líderes en América Latina y el Caribe. La adquisición de YellowPepper se fundamenta en una inversión y asociación estratégica que Visa realizó en YellowPepper en mayo de 2018. YellowPepper ofrece una amplia gama de APIs que permite a emisores, procesadores y gobiernos acceder de forma rápida y segura a múltiples rieles para muchos flujos de pago, a través de una sola conexión. Además, su plataforma permite a los emisores lanzar fácilmente soluciones en tiempo real independientes de la tarjeta y la cuenta, al tiempo que brinda servicios de valor agregado como tokenización, validación de identidad y herramientas de riesgo para brindar una oferta completa de transacciones y servicios. La compañía tiene operaciones en nueve países latinoamericanos y actualmente atiende a 50 clientes y a cinco millones de usuarios activos por mes Serge Elkiner, CEO y fundador de YellowPepper, y Rubén Salazar, vicepresidente senior de productos e innovación de Visa para América Latina y el Caribe. La adquisición de YellowPepper acelerará la adopción de la estrategia de “red de redes” de Visa, al reducir en gran medida el time-to-market (tiempo de llegada al mercado) de emisores y procesadores, y el costo de acceder a las soluciones innovadoras e interoperables, independientemente de quien opere o sea el propietario de los rieles de pago. “Estamos sumamente entusiasmados con la adquisición de YellowPepper y de cómo potenciar la trayectoria de crecimiento de nuestro negocio en América Latina y el Caribe”, dijo Eduardo Coello, presidente regional de Visa para América Latina y el Caribe. “La tecnología de YellowPepper, que funciona como un ‘adaptador universal’, será clave para potenciar nuestra estrategia de ‘red de redes’, y así convertirla en un punto único de acceso para iniciar cualquier tipo de transacción y habilitar el movimiento seguro de dinero”, añadió. YellowPepper facilitará una integración a Visa Direct, la plataforma de pagos en tiempo real de la empresa, Visa B2B Connect - la red de pagos transfronterizos B2B de Visa no basada en tarjetas - y servicios de valor agregado. La integración permitirá expandir la habilitación de productos y servicios digitales, proporcionar experiencias seguras para el ecosistema y hacer crecer nuevas transacciones y volúmenes de pago. Por ejemplo, a principios de este año, Visa y YellowPepper habilitaron la primera plataforma en tiempo real de su tipo en Perú para desarrollar PLIN, una solución de pagos P2P (persona a persona) con Scotiabank, BBVA e Interbank. A su vez, al combinar las capacidades de Visa Direct con productos patentados de YellowPepper como el Directorio Alias, el perfil de identidad del cliente y herramientas de enrutamiento inteligente, los consumidores ahora pueden utilizar su correo electrónico, número de teléfono u otra credencial personal para intercambiar dinero a través de sus bancos utilizando la opción de pago de su preferencia. “Durante los últimos tres años, nos hemos asociado estrechamente con YellowPepper para ofrecer soluciones innovadoras a los clientes de la región. A medida que estas soluciones se expanden a otros mercados, consideramos que alinearnos más cercanamente con YellowPepper y combinar nuestros negocios es una extensión natural de nuestra relación”, dijo Rubén Salazar, vicepresidente senior de productos e innovación de Visa para América Latina y el Caribe. “Con la adquisición de YellowPepper facilitaremos que los clientes puedan habilitar nuevos casos de uso y expandir nuestros servicios de valor agregado como la tokenización, la integración de múltiples rieles de pago, la validación de identidad, y herramientas de autenticación y riesgo, con el objetivo de brindar una experiencia de usuario integrada”, destacó el ejecutivo. YellowPepper continuará proporcionando comercialmente sus soluciones independientes de marca y el CEO Serge Elkiner continuará liderando al equipo de YellowPepper. La transacción está sujeta a aprobaciones regulatorias y a otras condiciones habituales de cierre. Se espera que la transacción se complete en las próximas semanas.
