“Cada dispositivo se está transformando en un dispositivo de compras”, manifestó Ed McLaughlin, director de pagos emergentes de MasterCard. “MasterPass reúne todas las formas de pago, desde tarjetas de plástico tradicionales hasta billeteras digitales, y brinda a los consumidores la capacidad de efectuar pagos donde sea que estén y de manera sencilla”.

MasterPass es la evolución de los servicios PayPass Wallet Services, que se anunciaron en la primavera de 2012 y han estado en prueba de producción con comerciantes y usuarios seleccionados. Los clientes en todo el mundo ahora podrán inscribirse para utilizar el servicio a través de sus bancos preferidos en Australia y Canadá a fines de marzo, y con posterioridad en los Estados Unidos y el Reino Unido, en la primavera y el verano respectivamente. Del mismo modo, la disponibilidad de MasterPass en 2013 se expandirá a otros mercados en todo el mundo, entre ellos, Bélgica, Brasil, China, Francia, Italia, Países Bajos, Singapur, España y Suecia.

El paquete de servicios de MasterPass abarca:

  • Servicios de finalización de compra (checkout) MasterPass: para brindar a los comerciantes una forma consistente de aceptar pagos electrónicos independientemente del lugar donde se encuentre el consumidor. En diferentes sitios ya sea dentro de la tienda, en la caja registradora o en el pasillo, MasterPass soportará el uso de NFC, códigos QR, tags y dispositivos móviles empleados en los puntos de venta. Respecto de las compras en línea, MasterPass brinda a los clientes un proceso de finalización de compra simple al eliminar la necesidad de ingresar información detallada del envío y la tarjeta con cada compra.
  • Billeteras conectadas por MasterPass: para permitir a los bancos, comerciantes y socios ofrecer sus propias billeteras. Los consumidores pueden almacenar la información de tarjetas, agendas y más de manera segura en una nube hospedada por una entidad confiable. Esta billetera es abierta, lo que significa que además de las tarjetas MasterCard, los consumidores pueden utilizar tarjetas de crédito, débito y prepago de otras marcas.
  • Servicios de valor agregado MasterPass: para enriquecer la experiencia de compra antes, durante y después de finalizar la misma. Estos incluirán más información como saldos de cuenta y alertas en tiempo real, programas de fidelización, así como ofertas y experiencias que no tienen precio.

“El producto de pago de última generación más exitoso será resultado de una amplia gama de partes interesadas en su diseño y les permitirá impactar en la experiencia del usuario de acuerdo con sus necesidades comerciales y la dinámica de la industria aún en evolución. MasterPass refleja esta sensibilidad moderna de diseño funcional y aprovecha una fuerza que únicamente una red mundial puede ofrecer”, señaló Patricia Hewitt, directora del servicio de asesoramiento de débito de Mercator Advisory Group.

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago.

It does...
