MasterCard is a technology company and payments industry leader. For more than four decades, we have been a driving force at the heart of commerce, making the global economy safer, more efficient, more inclusive and more transparent for all.
Consumers, merchants, business partners and governments in markets around the world have reaped the benefits of our innovative products and solutions which, simply put, are designed to make life easier.
What We Do
Every day, we make payments happen. Evey day, we deliver value.
What We Don't Do
We don‘t issue cards, set interest rates or establish annual fees. Those decisions are made by card issuers, such as banks. We don't set merchant discount rates either. Acquirers do that. And, of course, we don‘t make money from interchange fees.
A world beyond cash
Every day, everywhere, we use our technology and expertise to make payments safe, simple and smart
