Four Ghanaian banks, namely CAL Bank, Zenith Bank, Ecobank and GTBank which have either enabled Visa-on-mobile on their mobile banking applications and/or have acquired merchants to be able to accept the service. 

CAL Bank and Zenith Bank customers will access the service via their banking application.
