MasterCard completes m-payments trial in Canada

Apr 19, 2009 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- MasterCard Canada, in partnership with Citi Cards Canada and Bell Mobility, has completed the near-field communications trial of Mobile PayPass in Canada.

MasterCard said that this was the first trial in Canada to use Bell Mobility's wireless network allowing trial participants to make purchases using their mobile device at MasterCard PayPass acceptance locations across Canada. The four-month closed trial was a major step towards bringing mobile payments to Canadian mobile phone users, added MasterCard.

Scott Lapstra, vice president of market development at MasterCard Canada, said: "This mobile payment trial is one of the latest in a series of MasterCard global payment trials. The completion of this trial provides us with Canadian-specific data that will help prepare for the potential roll-out of mobile payment services in the future." http://www.datamonitor.com Republication or redistribution, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited without prior written consent.
