“By partnering with Plaid, we are building on the capabilities of modern card issuing that make it easier for our customers to build innovative card programs that allow their businesses to thrive,” said Vidya Peters, Chief Operating Officer, Marqeta. “We’re making it as simple as possible for consumers to access their bank information from one application, and reduce the time it takes to fund and begin using their account. Through our Plaid integration, developers building on Marqeta can authenticate users’ bank accounts without the complexity and extra time associated with traditional ACH processing, creating an overall more seamless experience.”
