Payment Innovation

We're passionate about innovation. As a leading technology company, MasterCard is constantly seeking to develop and test new payment solutions that are safe, simple and smart. The benefits of electronic payments far outweigh those of cash in terms of speed, convenience, security and transparency. And with the development of prepaid cards, those who are unbanked around the world, now have a chance to participate in our modern economy.
