Do you know all the places you’ve stored your payment card details?

From shopping sites to billers, keeping track of where your card credentials are held can be a daunting task. Today, Mastercard Consumer Control was introduced to address just this. The solution provides consumers a central view of where their cards are stored across all digital channels, as well as the ability to control how, when and where those cards are used.

This solution enables consumers to look no further than their own trusted bank or credit union to take control of their digital payment footprint - across devices and channels. Through this solution, issuers can help their cardholders more easily add their cards to their preferred shopping sites and payment devices, and optimize spend across the digital ecosystem.

“As digital payments continue to evolve, cardholders have more and more options to enable new types of devices for payment, and to pay in new ways online and in-app,” said Jessica Turner, executive vice president Digital Payments & Labs, Mastercard. “In our ongoing commitment to deliver consumer-centric solutions, Mastercard is introducing a series of APIs that will give the consumer direct control to view where their card is stored and manage spend across all digital channels - all from right within their mobile banking app or website.”

Your Bank Your Control

According to the findings of a recent Mastercard study, about three-quarters (73%) of Americans are interested in digital management of their credit/debit card information, and they want it from their bank or credit union. Mastercard Consumer Control uniquely empowers issuing partners to deliver a bank-branded, all-digital payment solution to provide consumers full oversight of their digital payment footprint. The solution helps issuers differentiate their mobile banking offering by adding powerful new functionalities. First Tech Federal Credit Union will be among the first issuers to support Mastercard Consumer Control.

The Simplest, Most Secure Path Forward

Mastercard is also partnering with token service providers, merchants and device manufacturers like Fitbit (NYSE: FIT), Fitpay and Garmin to enhance the overall consumer experience while delivering a streamlined solution across card on file and IoT devices. Layering services including tokenization with bank identification and verification of cardholders, Mastercard Consumer Control also leverages the most advanced security methods today. And with more than three quarters (78%) of survey respondents hesitant to store their financial information online, this added peace of mind is critical.

Consumer Control is one of the more than 35 APIs available through our Mastercard Developers portal. Mastercard envisions a future powered by an API for everything - one that inspires innovators to bring their ideas to life by plugging our technology into their solutions without having to start from scratch. Through our Payments, Data Services and Security APIs, we enable customers and partners to easily integrate Mastercard proprietary technology, products and services into their digital solutions. In the last year alone, the Mastercard API Platform has seen a 400% increase in usage.
