MasterCard Brings MasterPass to the UK

 MasterCard is bringing its MasterPass digital payments service to the UK.

Though its already available in the US, Canada and Australia, this is the European debut of the service, which includes in-store mobile check out capabilities, via NFC or QR codes, as well as digital wallet and VAS offerings.

MasterCard has signed up brands including Argos, Boots and House of Fraser as supporting partners, which will be rolling out MasterPass to their customers shortly.

We spoke to MasterCards Simon Phillips and Ed Olebe about MasterPass back in February, at MWC – you can watch the video interview below.
