Global Payments Inc. (GPN), one of the largest worldwide providers of payment solutions, today announced that it will implement MasterPass™, a digital payments service that allows consumers to use any payment card or enabled device for an enhanced shopping experience.
The new service will provide Global Payments North American merchants the ability to offer their shoppers a convenient and flexible way to pay via the web or on a mobile device.
"Online sales continue to grow at a significant rate, driving increased competition and access to more consumers. To attract and retain those consumers, merchants need to offer a consistent, simple shopping experience," said Jay Rising, President - Americas for Global Payments. "We are excited to offer MasterPass as part of our commitment to our merchants as a partner of choice to provide valuable services for a new era in digital commerce."
With MasterPass, shoppers can pay for the things they want with the security they demand, through the simple click of a mouse, touch of a tablet or tap of a smartphone. Shoppers' preferred payment and shipping information is securely stored within the digital service, which is readily accessible when they click on the "Buy with MasterPass" button and log into their accounts. This faster, more efficient experience leads to less shopping cart abandonment, increased sales and enhanced consumer loyalty.
"Consumers have an expectation, regardless of whether they are shopping in the physical or digital realm, for a secure and convenient experience," said Michael Cyr, group executive, U.S. Customer Delivery at MasterCard. "And it's those merchants who deliver on that expectation who will drive consumer loyalty. We are thrilled to be working with Global Payments to deliver the MasterPass digital service to their merchants and their shoppers. This simplicity keeps consumers happy, keeps them coming back and helps establish a merchant as a selected destination for commerce."
