Visa’s new innovation center in Tel Aviv said on Wednesday it is partnering with three Israeli payment technology companies.

Shahar Friedman, head of the Visa Innovation Studio, said his company was focused on investments and business partnerships with Israeli companies offering payment solutions.

“Visa cooperates with these start-ups to support their growth and development by leveraging the reach, capabilities, and security VisaNet, the company’s global payment network, offers,” he said.

One startup is ChargeAfter, whose platform enables retailers to offer consumers personalized financing options at checkout from multiple lenders.
