Shop (Safely) Until You Drop

online shopping cardA day shopping at the mall or online can be ruined by a lost, stolen, or fraudulently used card.

But MasterCard cardholders can shop, dine and travel confidently, because we’ve got you covered. Our technology – including SecureCode, MasterPass, and chip technology – provides enhanced protection whether you’re paying online, in-store, or via mobile.

The ABCs of MasterCard Safety & Security Technology:

  • Added protection. MasterCard’s SecureCode removes retailers from the shopping equation by creating a private code, only accessible to you and your financial institution. This gives transactions independent approval every time with an added layer of online shopping security.
  • Billing and shipping information go bye, bye. With MasterPass, your digital wallet is connected into the MasterPass Acceptance Network – eliminating the need to enter billing and shipping information every time you want to make a purchase. Checkouts done online or from a mobile device, including tablets and smartphones, are made simple, fast, and easy. And they’re protected by MasterCard’s industry-leading security protections, including multi-factor, risk-based authentication.
  • Chip cards – make counterfeiting virtually impossible. Chip technology utilizes an embedded microchip on a MasterCard card to encrypt information. This added layer of protection makes it extremely difficult for the card to be copied or counterfeited.

So, go on and use your card with confidence to purchase the perfect pair of jeans, shoes, or both… knowing you’re always protected.
