NEW ZEALAND | MasterCard announced the New Zealand launch of its digital wallet technology MasterPass, which is available from today. MasterPass eliminates the need for consumers to enter detailed shipping and card information to complete their online shopping at MasterPass merchant sites.
MasterPass supporting Banks and Payment Service Providers
Local partners live today with MasterPass include Westpac New Zealand, which will be the first bank to issue wallets in New Zealand, and payment technology providers Fontis, Flo2Cash, IP Payments, Payment Express, Paystation and Solutionists.
Local retailers already accepting MasterPass include Webjet, BuyInvite, DC Shoes, Jeanswest, LivingSocial, NZSALE, Quiksilver and Roxy. Additional partners working with MasterCard on MasterPass include ANZ, BNZ, and Kiwibank and those retail partners looking to implement include Book My Show, Briscoes, Event Cinemas, Fishpond, Live Nation, Living & Giving, Rebel Sport, Ticketmaster, plus many more.
Consumers can conveniently and securely store MasterCard and other branded credit, debit and prepaid card information, address books and more, removing the need to manually enter payment details as is necessary with most existing online payment systems. This simplifies the process of completing a transaction from any connected device, particularly those with smaller screens, and enables consumers to discover enhanced shopping experiences that are as simple as a click, tap or touch – online, in-store or anywhere. MasterPass is a crucial step in the evolution from plastic cards to digital wallets.

“As a leading online travel agency, Webjet is committed to empowering customers with greater travel choice and convenience. The addition of MasterPass enhances our website on both of these fronts. MasterPass is simple and convenient across devices, and is a choice in payment options we believe customers will value.”, David Galt, CEO, Webjet Australia & New Zealand.
