MasterCard expands Masterpass with Sage partnership
MasterCard has announced that its digital wallet, Masterpass, is now accepted at more than 10,000 small and medium-size merchants that use Sage Payment Solutions, a value-added payment product provided by Sage North America.
The companies said in a press release that the partnership allows merchants to leverage Masterpass to offer their customers the speed, simplicity and security of digital payments.
“Small and medium-size businesses play an important role in displacing cash and driving digital payment growth,” Linda Kirkpatrick, MasterCard executive vice president for merchants and acceptance in the U.S., said in a statement. “Our collaboration with Sage Payment Solutions means that thousands of smaller merchants will now have access to a new, secure checkout option to advance their business and remove friction at the point of sale. This agreement reinforces the commitment we’ve made at MasterCard to increase acceptance by bringing the safest and best payment technologies to all merchants.”
