Masterpass team up with Visa Checkout to gain a shiny new button

Masterpass hopes to join industry giants such as PayPal and Google Pay by becoming one of the buttons you see on a retailer such as Alternative Airline's checkout page. Instead of competing in this market solo, however, the world's largest card networks, Visa and Mastercard, are going to combine their strengths and add both their new online payment methods, Visa Checkout and Masterpass, as one single button. It is thought that American Express and Discover will collaborate in this venture. The cards are hoping to compete with the services offered by PayPal. However, this project is still in the early stages. The button is still being developed. Mastercard and Visa won’t start moving consumers enrolled in Masterpass and Masterpass to the new program until later this year.
