U.S. Bank customers now have access to fast, simple and secure digital payments with Masterpass by Mastercard when shopping in-store with an Android device at participating merchants. Customers can also leverage Masterpass to make purchases in-app or online, U.S. Bank and Mastercard announced today.

U.S. Bank customers that use Android devices can use this service at more than six million contactless-enabled merchants across the globe. Masterpass is also accepted at hundreds of thousands of merchants for seamless online and in-app payments.

“Joining forces with Mastercard to offer a digital payment solution gives our Mastercard customers the flexibility to pay how they choose,” said Clifford Cook, head of product and marketing for the U.S. Bank Retail Payments Services Division. “By using Masterpass, our customers can know with confidence that they are paying with trusted technology, whether they are a small business buying equipment at an office supply store or a family of four dining at their favorite neighborhood restaurant.”

Masterpass stores all payment information, including card details from both Mastercard and other payment networks, shipping information, and payment preferences in one convenient, secure place. It leverages the most advanced methods of payment security available today, including tokenization, which ensures information is protected.
