MasterCard has collaborated with Sage Payment Solutions to boost acceptance of its mobile payment solution Masterpass.
MasterCard said that its payment solution is now accepted at over 10,000 small- and medium-sized merchants using, a value added payment solution provided by Sage North America.
Merchants using Sage Payment Solutions can now provide a new option to their customers looking for a seamless and secure way to pay.
