Visa said it would allow usage of its cards on Pornhub-owner MindGeek’s platforms that host professionally produced adult studio content, but would continue to decline processing payments coming from Pornhub itself.

“Following a thorough review, Visa will reinstate acceptance privileges for MindGeek sites that offer professionally produced adult studio content that is subject to requirements designed to ensure compliance with the law,” Visa said in a statement.

This comes after Visa temporarily suspended purchases on Pornhub, earlier this month, following allegations made in a New York Times report of child abuse and nonconsensual activity on the site. The credit card company says its temporary ban on Pornhub and other MindGeek platforms is still in place until its ongoing investigation is finalized.

Pornhub said on Wednesday it was disappointed and that it has actively worked to employ extensive measures to protect the platform from such content, including employing a vast team of human moderators manually reviewing every single upload, a thorough system for flagging and removing illegal material.

Mastercard has already permanently terminated the use of its cards on Pornhub after its investigation confirmed the presence of illegal content on the platform.
