MasterCard overhauls its digital wallet service

MasterCard has revealed a major expansion to its Masterpass digital wallet service that will allow customers to pay in-store using contactless technology.

Just launched in the US and due to expand into Europe, Africa and the Middle East in 2017, the changes mean Masterpass will work on Smart phones, wearable payment devices and tablets, giving customers the option to pay online or in person with just one touch.
