Summary

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. As well as online payments, Masterpass also allows users to make QR code-based payments at merchants 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.

Mastercard has collaborated with Visa, American Express, and Discover to launch a new interoperable one-click checkout solution named Click to Pay. As of July 2020, more than 10,000 merchants in the US offered Click to Pay. The new solution will gradually replace Masterpass, Visa Checkout, and Amex Express Checkout.
