MasterCard has partnered with Cardstream and PayVector to widen the reach of its MasterPass digital wallet service.
The partnership will extend MasterPass support to a further 20,000 online retailers in the UK and Ireland, bringing the total to more than 55,000.
“The growth in adoption of digital wallets like MasterPass here in the UK shows how consumers are becoming increasingly confident when shopping online and looking for more convenient ways to pay,” said Scott Abrahams, head of acceptance and emerging payments at MasterCard UK & Ireland. “As mobiles and tablets increasingly become the device of choice for consumers shopping online, it’s now critical for retailers to provide a quick, simple and secure checkout process which isn’t dependant on shoppers entering their card and address details. Together, Cardstream, PayVector and MasterCard are partnering to make this digital shift as seamless as possible.”
