There’s a new way to pay online. I was a little dubious about whether the system would save me time, however I do a lot of online shopping so was willing to try it out.
Essentially, MasterPass (by MasterCard) is like your purse, only it’s digital. It’s a place to safely store all the information you need to make online purchases; this includes shipping addresses and payment details. When you do make online purchases and checkout with MasterPass, it pre-fills your information using your stored data. It’s only recently been rolled out so is available in limited online stores. It will be widely available during 2015.
I happened to be looking online for a point and shoot waterproof camera the entire family could enjoy (especially the kids) as our family are heading to New Zealand this year. I came across 2nds World (which I didn’t even know existed); they sell new, seconds and refurbished products.
A red Panasonic Lumix FT25 waterproof camera caught my attention (it looked shock proof enough for the kids to enjoy). I’m happy to say checking out using MasterPass WAS really easy and quick. I was thrilled! I pressed the ‘Buy with MasterPass’ button and followed the prompts and my information was pre-filled (no rifling through my purse to find my card number or typing in my postal address).
Below are a few underwater shots from the new camera. You can find more details about this model here.
How to Use MasterPass
- Register for a MasterPass enabled digital wallet with your respective bank. This is the once off process that took about 5-10 minutes.
- Look for the MasterPass logo for participating stores (you can find a list here.).
- Checkout using MasterPass and it will import your delivery and payment details from your wallet.
If you frequently shop online (like I do) then MasterPass is a great option to consider for ease and safety.
