Active Network, the premier global marketplace for activities and events and an industry-leading provider of intelligence solutions, recently announced a multi-year strategic alliance with Visa Inc. to offer Visa Checkout, the easier way to use a Visa card online, as a payment option across its activity and event registration platforms globally.

The multi-year agreement also implies both ACTIVE and Visa will be investing in a series of digital, cross-promotional marketing activities to be executed throughout the term of agreement.

“We are thrilled to partner with ACTIVE Network, whose customers organize activities and events across the globe,” said Sam Shrauger, senior vice president, digital solutions, Visa Inc. “With the integration of Visa Checkout across ACTIVE’s online and mobile properties, even more consumers will have a safe, secure, and seamless way to use their Visa card online.”

Once the program is implemented this summer, ACTIVE will offer Visa Checkout as a payment option for anyone who registers for an activity or event through ACTIVE.com and its mobile app, in addition to any in-app merchants.

Recently reaching more than 20 million accounts, Visa Checkout enables millions of consumers to pay in just a couple clicks on any device around the web with some of the world’s top merchants.

Visa Checkout will soon be accessible to consumers registering for activities across ACTIVE’s online and mobile properties within the U.S., Canada, Ireland, and the UK.

“This unique relationship between ACTIVE and Visa is not only mutually beneficial for our two companies, it’s a win for our customers as well as for consumers seeking both convenience and security when registering for activities and events,” said Greg Ingino, chief information officer for ACTIVE Network. “We’re consistently working to integrate new solutions into our technology suite that benefit our customers. By adding Visa Checkout, we’re making it easier for people to register for and participate in our customers’ events and activities.”
