World Congress, MasterCard
today introduced MasterPass™
– the future of digital payments. MasterPass is a digital service that
allows consumers to use any payment card or enabled device to discover
enhanced shopping experiences that are as simple as a click, tap or
touch – online, in-store or anywhere.

“Every device is becoming a shopping device,” said Ed McLaughlin, chief
emerging payments officer, MasterCard. “MasterPass brings together all
of the ways we pay for things, from traditional plastic cards to digital
wallets, and gives consumers the ability to make a payment from wherever
they are and with one simple experience.”
MasterPass is the evolution of PayPass Wallet Services, which was
announced in Spring of 2012 and has been in production trial with select
merchants and issuers. Consumers around the world will now be able to
sign up for the service through financial institutions in Australia and
Canada by the end of March, and in the United States and the United
Kingdom later in the Spring and Summer respectively. Additionally,
MasterPass availability in 2013 will expand to other markets worldwide,
including: Belgium, Brazil, China, France, Italy, Netherlands,
Singapore, Spain and Sweden.
The MasterPass suite of services includes:
MasterPass checkout services – to provide merchants a consistent way
to accept electronic payments regardless of where the consumer may be.
For in-store scenarios either at the register or in the aisle,
MasterPass will support the use of NFC, QR codes, tags and mobile
devices used at points of sale. For online purchases, MasterPass
provides shoppers a simple check-out process by eliminating the need
to enter detailed shipping and card information with every purchase.
MasterPass-connected wallets – to enable banks, merchants and partners
to offer their own wallets. Consumers can securely store card
information, address books and more in a secure cloud, hosted by an
entity they trust. The wallet is open, which means that in addition to
MasterCard cards, consumers can use other branded credit, debit and
MasterPass value added services – to enrich the shopping experience
before, during and after checkout. These will include more information
like account balances and real-time alerts, loyalty programs, as well
as Priceless offers and experiences.
“The most successful next generation payment product will be considerate
of a wider range of stakeholders in its design and allow them to impact
the user experience according to their business need and still-evolving
industry dynamics. MasterPass reflects this modern sensibility of
agnostic-based design but leverages the muscle that only a global
network can deliver,” said Patricia Hewitt, Director, Debit Advisory
Service, Mercator Advisory Group.
