PURCHASE, N.Y. and LAS VEGAS, Nevada – October 24, 2016 – Mastercard today announced agreements with Microsoft, Google and Samsung to bring online payments capabilities to US-based users of their digital wallets. Starting early next year, Mastercard cardholders that use Microsoft Wallet, Android Pay or Samsung Pay will be able to shop online at the hundreds of thousands of merchants around the world where Masterpass is accepted.
Announced earlier this year, the enhanced Masterpass solution uniquely empowers banks and other partners to deliver a branded and customised all-digital payment solution. With Masterpass, consumers are able to make fast, simple and secure digital payments – across devices and channels – anywhere they want to shop: online, in-app and in-store using contactless. To speed up and simplify the online checkout process, consumers’ credit, debit and prepaid card information, along with shipping addresses, are all securely stored in one place. Consumers then complete a purchase with as a little as one click or touch on their favorite connected device.
