MasterPass Digital Wallet Launches in Canada

April 13, 2013

Hi Everyone, 

Further to my earlier blog entry – a knee jerk entry to be honest – comes a new development … MasterPass. 

According to a press release by non other than Moneris Solutions

Canadians first in North America to experience MasterPass – a better, faster way to pay while simplifying the digital shopping experience

Of particular note is … 

As of launch, merchants including Porter Airlines, WagJag, Jaunt.ca and Grocery Gateway have enabled MasterPass checkout services on their eCommerce websites.  MasterCard plans to expand the number of MasterPass enabled merchants in Canada to 800 merchants by the end of 2013 and 2,800 merchants by the end of 2014. When making purchases through these companies’ eCommerce websites, MasterPass digital services will allow Canadian consumers to securely and seamlessly complete their transaction in a few clicks, eliminating the burden of filling out card and shipping information repeatedly. 

Considering 800 merchants by the end of 2013 for online purchases without the need to enter your credit card number and billing address, that’s a good thing, I hope. 

BMO Launches MasterPass-connected BMO Wallet

Current MasterPass partners include: WagJag, Jaunt.ca, Porter Airlines, Grocery Gateway, Roots, Global Payments Canada, TD Merchant Services, Moneris Solutions Corporation and BMO Bank of Montreal. 

Time for statistics … 

In Canada, eCommerce is growing at a much faster pace than retail sales.  MasterCard Advisor’s SpendingPulse data shows total Canadian year-over-year eCommerce sales grew 26.6% over the past 6 months ending in February 2013, compared to just 2.9% growth in overall Canadian retail sales during the same time period.

So you can possibly draw to a conclusion that PayPal maybe a bit worried if this will affect their business within say a 3 year time frame, if no other offerings or deals are done by them. What I’m most curious about is if this new development will coincide or directly work/affect mobile NFC payments using MasterCard in Canada in the near future, say in 2 calendar quarters. We shall see.

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of
    content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

      I’ve not considered changing my blog layout as of yet. I am aware many articles such as the “MasterPass Digital Wallet Launches in Canada” hardly has any media. Not all my posts will have lots of media. The point of my blog is about my research and the message I’m trying to share of the content from the research with my opinions based on it; the medium makes it helpful but the media is not the central focus in each post or as a whole.

      I’ll continue to reconsider though and maybe try to condense more with links – yet I’d rather not use too many links unless required for sources since it’ll cause readers such as yourself (and me also for going back to reference) to hope around the internet. That is not ideal nor enjoyable for anyone; especially on mobile devices. Possibly some videos maybe done in the future – I’m not very photogenic nor am I a great speaker with a great voice so I’ll have to muster up a LOT of courage on this lol.

      Thank you for the visit and positive criticism this is VERY helpful!!

      You really shouldn’t be asking a blogger about your choices for a credit card. You’ll need to right down your needs for a credit card, acceptable limits, locations/vendors you’ll use it with, features + security of the card, and considerations of travelling. You should either contact your local bank(s) or the card vendors themselves (Visa, MasterCard, etc).
