Purchase, N.Y. -- MasterCard and global online payment provider Ogone are partnering on the integration and deployment of MasterPass. This collaboration which covers Belgium, The Netherlands, France, United Kingdom, Germany and Spain in a first phase and the remaining countries Ogone operates in later on.
MasterPass, the digital platform from MasterCard, simplifies online purchases made from connected devices including PCs, touchpads and smartphones, and eliminates the need to enter detailed shipping and card information to complete their online shopping at MasterPass merchant sites that have the ‘Buy with MasterPass button on their checkout page. Consumers can securely store MasterCard and other branded credit, debit and prepaid card information, address books and more. This simplification of the purchasing process, which also includes all the guarantees of a card payment, should enable e-merchants to increase significantly their transformation rate and boost the development of m-commerce.
This solution, which is initially being deployed for e-commerce, will at a second stage enable retailers to offer to their customers to pay in store with MasterPass and encourage the convergence of payment experiences using new technologies such as NFC and QR code. From end of November 2013, MasterPass will be available on Ogone’s online payment platform, an online, secure and cross-channel solution.
"This partnership with Ogone will further strengthen MasterPass momentum and accelerate the adoption commitment of MasterPass in Belgium and in Europe,” said David Dechamps, GM, Benelux, Mastercard.
