MasterPass is a simple, convenient, trusted digital platform that provides a fast, safe shopping experience at thousands of online merchants. It enables consumers to pay for the things they want with the security they demand, online or mobile, using any device. The platform securely stores payment and shipping information, which is readily accessible when a consumer checks out using the, “Buy with MasterPass” button and logs into their account.

“MasterPass continues to gain acceptance momentum across merchants in all categories, whether through direct relationships like we have with Saks Fifth Avenue, or through key partners like NAB Velocity,” said Michael Cyr, group executive, U.S. Market Development, MasterCard. “With increased acceptance of MasterPass, more consumers can go online, place their order and pay with just a couple of clicks. The burden of entering delivery and billing information is eliminated, further enhancing the shopping experience.”

With device-based digital commerce growing and smart devices becoming the new first-stop shopping channel for consumers, MasterPass can help retailers of all sizes and across all channels deliver the best possible experience for their customers.

“The Saks Fifth Avenue customer experience is extremely important to us, whether in our stores or online,” said Dion Rooney, EVP, HBC Digital. “MasterPass is an integral component of providing our customers with seamless and secure shopping at Saks.com.”

U.S. consumers can sign up for a MasterPass account by visiting the MasterPass website or through a participating bank. Launched in 2013, MasterPass by MasterCard is free, easy to set up, and accepted anywhere you see the “Buy with MasterPass” button.
