It’s just a piece of plastic that lives in your wallet... that pays for stuff.
But on an average day, it will make 54 million purchases happen across the globe. It will connect the world’s biggest financial institutions with over 1 billion cardholders, in over 24 million merchant locations. It gives people and businesses in big cities and little towns, in big villages and little metropolises what they want, what they need, what they care and dream about on a millisecond by millisecond basis. Which isn’t bad for just a little piece of plastic that lives in your wallet (and at The Heart of Commerce).
