Marshall Haldane, Operations Director, "allpay's certification of MasterCard Paypass products demonstrates allpay's strong technical abilities and ongoing investment in providing innovative solutions. PayPass will have a marked effect on the way low-value purchases are made in the UK, for both retailers and cardholders alike, to reduce cash handling and save consumers time, whilst retailers will benefit from quicker throughput of purchases. Retailers and banking institutions see contactless payment solutions such as PayPass as an opportunity to show innovation in payments, while providing a better service to their customer. PayPass is ideal for a quick payment environment where speed is essential, for everyday small purchases, such as public transport tickets, coffee, sandwiches or fast food".
