Some of you might remember what it was like to pay with a credit card in the early days. The cashier had to use one of those ‘zip zap’ machines to take an imprint of your card. Then, they’d have to manually fill out all the fields including your name, the taxes, and the total. Then you had to sign it. We’ve certainly come a long way!
Today, you can walk into a store and tap your credit card, phone, or smartwatch, and walk out in seconds with your purchase. Unfortunately, the online shopping experience isn’t quite as seamless.
Mastercard did some research and discovered that over 40% of Canadian shoppers prefer to check out as a guest. This is the step where you need to fill in all your details before you can check out. And in the same research, they discovered that over 38% of Canadians feel that this step takes too long. So, what can be done to speed this up while keeping our online details secure? The answer is Click to Pay with Mastercard.
Click to Pay with Mastercard takes that simplicity and consistency of the checkout experience in physical stores and translates it to the online shopping experience.
It’s Secure – When you pay via Click to Pay, each transaction will be protected with Mastercard’s tokenization technology that replaces account numbers and other sensitive data, resulting in a payment method that is hard to breach or replicate.
It’s Easy – Speed through guest checkout with the Click to Pay online checkout option.
Click to Pay with Mastercard works across many devices – from your smartphone or tablet to your PC. If you change devices, just enter your email, and Click to Pay will send you a secure one-time code for that shopping session.
To help spread the word about Click to Pay, we’ve teamed up with Mastercard to giveaway TWO Mastercard Prepaid Cards valued at $500 CAD each.
