The TLDR article provides information about TodayPay Inc.’s recent appointment of Mike West, a seasoned Visa executive, as a Strategic Advisor. West brings over 25 years of experience in payments, with senior roles at Visa, PayPal, and American Express. He has expertise in product commercialization and Go-to-Market strategies, particularly in the area of international expansion. TodayPay, a technology company specializing in Refunds as a Service™, aims to revolutionize the payments industry by improving the customer experience for refunds.

In terms of West’s experience, he has spent 10 years at Visa, primarily overseeing Visa Direct, a global platform for real-time money movement. He played a crucial role in expanding Visa Direct to support billions of transactions across countries and different payment methods. Before Visa, West worked at PayPal, where he contributed to the launch and growth of the company’s digital payments solutions and services.
