Masterpass App Discontinued

Have you been using the Masterpass App? Unfortunately as of April 10th, it will be discontinued. 

Masterpass was a payment system that was similar to Visa Checkout. It let you add credit cards, but the interesting thing about it is that the cards themselves do not have to be exclusively MasterCard. You can add MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and even Discover cards to the service. 

The good news, is that while the dedicated app is going away, the service will still be available. The bad news in my eyes is the lose of contactless features. I just love the ability to tap and pay for its speed and security. For us in America, it’s tough to find places that accept that form of payment, but when you do it’s a great feeling. 

Masterpass suggests either contacting your bank in order to get a contactless card, or using another mobile wallet that has that capability. My preference of course is Samsung Pay because of the ability to use it just about anywhere, but that’s just me. 

What do you think of this move? Let us know below!
