The service,, will allow users to pay for items online using one account linked to a selection of different cards through a web browser on PCs, tablets, laptops and smartphones.

The service is unlikely to offer mobile NFC payments at launch, but Visa said it eventually hopes to incorporate “any or all” payments technologies, including those taking place in the “mobile environment”. will be delivered through Visa’s partner banks, which include high street names such as Halifax and Barclays.
