Democratizing Issuer Payment Processing with Just-In-Time “JIT” Funding
More than 20 years ago payment service providers were building Payment Gateways, the first technology solutions for e-commerce merchants to accept payment cards for purchases. The Payment Gateway made way for a wave of API innovation by providing accessibility and opportunity for anyone to become a merchant online. Now, Marqeta is bringing API innovation to the issuing side of payments through Just in Time “JIT” Funding, enabling commerce innovators to be part of the authorization stream of their payment card transactions in real time.
