MasterCard and ING's trial Maestro for e/m-Commerce

AMSTERDAM  | Back in November, MasterCard and ING Group announced a joint trial underway in the Netherlands that could provide a new way to pay using mobile phones. The trial, which has generated great interest since the CARTES trade show, demonstrates the convergence of physical and digital payments by extending the functionality of the Mobile MasterCard® PayPass™ application – already used to support contactless payments at point of sale, to support highly secure internet and mobile internet payments.


Maestro is a multi-national debit card service owned by MasterCard that was founded in 1990. Maestro cards are obtained from associate banks and can be linked to the card holder's current account, or they can be prepaid cards. The cardholder presents the card at the point of sale (POS) and this is swiped through the terminal by the assistant or the customer or inserted into a chip and PIN device. The payment is authorised by the card issuer to ensure that the cardholder has sufficient funds in their account to make the purchase and the cardholder confirms the payment by either signing the sales receipt or entering their 4 to 6-digit PIN.
