What is MasterCard PayPass®?

MasterCard PayPass is a contactless payment feature that provides cardholders with a simpler way to pay. Now, you can simply tap your card, key fob or cell phone, on a point-of-sale terminal reader to pay. It works just like your traditional MasterCard payment card-but no more swiping or giving your card to cashiers.

Upgrade to an NFC-enabled phone and get more than just talk.

Near Field Communication (NFC) is a technology that allows a cell phone to securely transmit and receive information wirelessly. With this special phone, you can pay for items at a store using MasterCard PayPass, find out movie times, get rebates and more.

NFC allows you to download MasterCard PayPass onto your cell phone in minutes and use it wherever MasterCard PayPass is accepted.

Just sign up for MasterCard PayPass at your issuing bank's website, or by calling their customer service number. Your bank will send over your payment information securely through your cellular network. You no longer need to wait weeks to get a new card in the mail.
