MasterCard has launched its new digital payment solution, MasterPass, in the Czech market.
The digital payments platform allows consumers to make fast and safe payments at online merchants, wherever MasterPass is accepted.
Customers can now download or update the MasterCard Mobile wallet app in their mobile phone or tablet, save the details of their payment cards and mailing address once, and are then ready to pay for goods and services with a few clicks at all e-shops in the Czech Republic and abroad wherever they see ‘Buy with MasterPass’.
The MasterCard Mobile digital wallet is now connected to the global MasterPass acceptance network, making online shopping faster and easier.
Existing or new MasterCard Mobile customers enter the details of the payment card and mailing address only once, with no need to register at each merchant.
Miroslav Luke, general manager at MasterCard Europe in the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Austria, said: "MasterPass is a service used by digital wallets providers and online merchants around the world. In the Czech Republic, customers have been given the opportunity to use MasterPass through the MasterCard Mobile app, a digital wallet already installed by tens of thousands of users.
"This innovation not only makes payments in e-shops at home and abroad fast, safe and simple, but in the future MasterCard Mobile users will also be able to enjoy new wallet features such as airtime top-up, wallet account management via a website, person-to-person payments and NFC payments."
Currently, MasterPass is used by more than 40,000 merchants across the world.
