Alto Global Processing: MasterCard to deploy 410,000 Contactless Terminals In Japan

MasterCard has announced that it will deploy a target of 410,000 MasterCard PayPass– enabled point of sale (POS) terminals throughout Japan over the next three years, enabling travellers visiting the country to enjoy the speed and convenience of making contactless transactions.

In February, MasterCard announced strong growth of contactless payments on MasterCard-enabled cards across the Asia/Pacific, Middle East and Africa region in 2012, citing a 28% (YoY) increase in Mastercard_220_1000merchant locations, reflecting a strong demand from consumers in the region for simple and secure ways to make everyday payments.

The early adoption and penetration of contactless payments in Japan, ahead of other countries, saw transactions amounting to over 2 trillion yen in 2011, according to the Bank of Japan. Contactless payments continue to expand at a rapid rate, in part due to the increased use of NFC payments.

The 410,000 MasterCard contactless terminals will be deployed by domestic card companies including Mitsubishi UFJ NICOS, Sumitomo Mitsui Card, Orient Corporation and UC Card.

Robert Luton, division president of MasterCard Japan said, “Consumers around the world are embracing the contactless payment experience. With the introduction of MasterCard’s contactless terminals across the country, cardholders traveling from abroad will get the benefit of safe and secure contactless payments in Japan. We look forward to providing more contactless payments opportunities for cardholders around the globe when they visit Japan, through a wider range of MasterCard-enabled cards and devices.”

ALTO GLOBAL PROCESSING: OUR TECHNOLOGY

Alto Global Processing – Our technology is globally recognized and fully functional via a multi-currency Payment Platform that enables businesses to process electronic payment transactions. Our proprietary gateway platform is a secure e-commerce application service provider service that authorizes payments for e-businesses, online retailers, bricks and clicks, or traditional brick and mortar. It is the equivalent of a physical point of sale terminal located in most retail outlets.

It is paramount to protect our consumers’ private information. Thus, to protect credit card holder’s details, our technology is based on encrypting sensitive information: such as credit card number and personal private information. This ensures that information is passed securely between the customer and the merchant and also between merchant and the payment processor in a highly secured environment with the applicable regulations set by the card holder associations and banking partners.
