In February, Visa Inc. (NYSE: V ) announced VisaNet +AI, a suite of AI-powered services that address long-standing challenges and pain points for banks, merchants and consumers - including delays and confusion with managing account balances and the unpredictability of daily settlement for financial institutions. VisaNet +AI comprises several innovative concepts and new value-added services, including Visa Smarter Posting and Visa Smarter Settlement Forecast, as well as Visa Smarter Stand-In Processing (Smarter STIP), a capability announced in August of last year. These innovations harness Visa's high-performance AI platform to help make payments more predictable, transparent, and speedy.
"Our clients, partners and cardholders look to us for actionable data-driven insights to better manage their businesses and financial lives, especially during these unprecedented times. Today we're announcing a set of services that use AI to make it easier for consumers to manage their accounts, and for financial institutions to manage their business," said Jack Forestell, Executive Vice President and Chief Product Officer at Visa. "With our investment in AI infrastructure, we're unlocking novel, real-time solutions to complex problems. This is just the beginning of what we can do with the predictive power of AI."
"Optimizing the payment experience: Ensuring high probability of approval & decline prediction
We've all been there. We are ready to make a high-value purchase that we've spent weeks thinking about, maybe a new gaming console, a designer handbag or a vacation rental. And surprise, surprise, the transaction is declined, even though we are well below the card limit."
"But now, by combining historical trends and transaction variables, PayPal's machine learning models can help predict in advance if a user's card will be declined for a transaction and prevent the purchase from being completed. If a decline is predicted, we can create a custom experience for the user that will ensure a valid purchase goes through, which has resulted in improvement of auth rates between 60-240 bps for certain merchants. For example, we can surface a different payment method within a user's PayPal wallet that has been successful in the past. We can also prompt a secondary form of authentication using 3D-secure or request a CVV to make sure the user is who they say they are."
Another smaller player in the sector, Loop Insights Inc. (TSXV:: MTRX) (OTCQB: RACMF), a provider of contactless solutions and artificial intelligence ("AI") to drive real-time insights, also uses AI and IoT saying, "Like the internet connects websites, Loop connects physical locations – providing the data connectivity that will level the playing field between brick and mortar retailers and online giants."
One of their technologies, SmarTap, "infuses Loop's cloud-based artificial intelligence with an NFC (Near Field Communication) reader to create a smart engagement platform suitable for a multitude of applications, including check-in processes, venue tracing, loyalty programs, and marketing. Users simply tap their mobile device to access a streamlined, contactless experience - which is more important than ever before."
Looking at the sector, innovation through AI to simplify the payment process for both consumers and retailers is coming from both small and large corporations. The future is clearly one of contactless payments and has been even further accelerated by the Covid-19 pandemic.
