Prerequisites

The first transaction in an installment payment is a
customer-initiated transaction
(CIT). Before you can perform a subsequent
merchant-initiated transaction
(MIT), you must store the customer's credentials for later use. Before you can store the user's credentials, you must get the customer's consent to store their private information. This process is also known as establishing a relationship with the customer.

Installment Payment Types

Visa Platform Connect
enables you to process installment payments but does not have a role in setting the terms for the installment plan.
Visa Platform Connect
enables you to process these types of installments payments:
Issuer-Funded Installment Payments
The customer pays for goods or services using an installment plan agreed upon by the customer and their issuing bank. The issuer controls how the customer's account is debited. Your account is credited for the entire amount in a single transaction. The issuer assumes the risk and establishes credit rates and fees that are charged to the customer. The customer pays the funding cost, which is a fee for paying in installments. In Brazil, a
Crediario
is a special type of issuer-funded installment payment plan that enables the customer to request information about the terms of the installment plan before approving the installment payments.
Merchant-Funded Installment Payments
The customer pays for goods or services using an installment plan agreed upon by you and the customer. The issuer controls how the customer's account is debited. Your account is credited periodically for partial amounts as the customer's account is debited. You assume the risk and establish the credit rate and fees that are charged to the customer.
Co-Branded Merchant Financed Installment Payments—Brazil Only
You and the issuer determine the terms for this kind of installment plan. The funding varies depending on the agreement between you, the issuer, and the customer. This funding method is available only for Mastercard installment payments in Brazil.
Issuer Merchant Co-Financed Installment Payments—Brazil Only
The issuer creates the installment plan. You and the issuer determine the service fees that the customer pays to you and the issuer. The acquirer is paid in full while the issuer is paid in installments by the customer. You or the customer pay the funding cost, which is a fee for paying in installments. This funding method is available only for Mastercard installment payments in Brazil.
