  • The launch time of an online store in the VISO Shop system starts at 15 minutes, depending on the customer's customization preferences for design and goods quantity
  • The system is ideal for small businesses and merchants

An online store based on the VISO Shop platform is created in three steps:

  1. Register by specifying all company details, including retail outlets’ addresses, goods delivery capabilities, etc.
  2. Select a domain name, select a website template, upload a logo, select font styles
  3. Fill the storefront with goods. For each product, you need to specify the name, cost, description, vendor code, etc.

5. Payment cards

By opening a VISO Wallet, you can immediately issue prepaid cards such as Virtual or HCE (host card emulation)and pay at any point of sale bearing the contactless payment sign or online. Payment restrictions apply to limits before the authentication is completed.

You can order delivery of a VISO Light prepaid card to your address around the globe. You can use it to make payments without a smartphone and where contactless cards are not accepted, but the same payment limits apply.

6. Wallet

The VISO Wallet allows for connecting other cryptocurrencies – Bitcoin, Ethereum, Waves – to pay for services via VISO cards.

The Wallet comes with a capability to store funds in Georgian laris, U.S. dollars, euros, or VITO tokens.

From the Wallet, you can wire funds into bank accounts after completing the authentication.

The VISO Wallet is a protected platform with bank security standards-compliant access. The Wallet comes in the form of a website and a mobile app that enable you to:

  1. View Wallet, cryptocurrency, and bank account balances
  2. View transaction logs
  3. Transfer VITO between users
  4. Sell/purchase VITO using any bank accounts
  5. Buy VITO by exchanging external cryptocurrencies for it
  6. Buy VITO with any payment cards
  7. Pay for services (mobile communications, utility bills and such)
  8. Order bank products (VISO Card Light, VISO Card Virtual, VISO Card HCE, VISO Card Pro)

7. Exchange

The cryptocurrency exchange is integrated with the VISO Wallet and allows for carrying out transactions to purchase/sell VITO cryptocurrency and exchange it for both fiatmoney,transferable into Georgian bank accounts, and other cryptocurrencies. The exchange rate varies automatically withina current currency position, depending on how VITO is trading in relation to all currencies.

VITO cryptocurrency can be traded on external exchanges not connected with the VISO environment. VISO holders can independently buy/sell the cryptocurrency from/to other users, setting the exchange rate on their own.

Trade turnover will depend on the volume of cryptocurrency purchase/sale translations. Cryptocurrency purchases by individuals will also be processed via the exchange. The exchange maintains balances within 10% of turnover to enable transactions. Large transactions can take a long time, as making them requires the accumulation of a sufficient sell/purchase turnover.

Major currency pairs:

  1. BTC - VITO
  2. BTC - ETH
  3. BTC - WAVES
  4. ETH - VITO
  5. ETH - WAVES
  7. VITO - GEL (Georgian lari)
  8. VITO - USD (U.S. dollar)
  9. VITO - EUR (euro)

Conversion of other cryptocurrencies into the VISO Wallet balance and associated VISO cards is only possible through conversion into VITO. This ensures VITO turnover in the secondary cryptocurrency market. VITO is thus a link between other cryptocurrencies and VISO services.

Upon receiving VITO, a user can immediately convert them into their VISO Wallet balance denominated in Georgian laris, U.S.dollars, or euros.
