Competitor Profile: Masterpass

Masterpass by Mastercard is a global payment service launched in 2013 as an extension of the PayPass wallet service.It allows users to store card details and billing addresses for faster checkout online.

Once details are saved, it skips the process of entering card and shipping details for all future payments.It also allows users to make in-store payments via smartphones by scanning a QR code at partner merchant stores.

Masterpass works on all web-enabled devices, including desktop computers, mobile phones, and tablets.

The payment solution was initially launched in Australia, Canada, the US, and the UK and later expanded across Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.It is supported by 340,000 online websites and apps globally, with more joining each month.

In addition to online payments, Masterpass also allows users to make QR code-based payments at merchants stores in select markets. Since Masterpass incurs no extra charges in addition to traditional interchange fees, merchants have a significant incentive to encourage usage of this solution.

Masterpass is supported by major payment schemes Mastercard, Visa, American Express, Diners Club, and Discover as well as major global banks. Users can add debit, credit, and prepaid cards to their Masterpass or connected wallet account.
