Resurs Bank launches Masterpass in Norway

Today ResursBank AB launched its digital wallet based on MasterCards™ digital wallet MasterPass™. Payair has been responsible to custom build the wallet to fit ResursBanks needs.

Following the launch of Masterpass in Sweden in 2015, Resurs Bank is now the first bank to launch the service in Norway. With Masterpass consumers can add cards and shipping addresses into a “digital wallet”, which makes online payments easier, faster and safer.

Resurs Bank launches its digital wallet in Norway, which becomes available to anyone with a Norwegian BankID. Users of Masterpass, who are customers at Resurs Bank, do not need to enter shipping addresses and card details when making a purchase, as these are uploaded automatically.

Masterpass is developed by Mastercard and makes it possible to pay anytime, from, for example, smartphones, computers and tablets, and with all types of cards. Card- and shipping information are stored comfortably and securely in Masterpass.

 “By launching our digital wallet, we make it easier for customers to shop online. From our experience in Sweden, we know that consumers appreciate our digital wallet with its simplicity and high security. I expect that our Norwegian customers will appreciate the service, and that it will strengthen Resurs Bank’s offering in Norway” says Joakim Wallin, Head of Cards at Resurs Bank.

 “We are pleased that Resurs Bank is among the first issuers to launch Masterpass in Norway and after the summer, we expect that more Norwegian issuers will offer Masterpass. Today you can shop using Masterpass at over 270,000 merchants in 31 countries and more Nordic merchants are added all the time” says Mats Taraldsson, Head of Market Development Mastercard Nordic and Baltic region.

The solution is developed by Payair Technologies AB.

 “By being the first bank to launch Masterpass in the Norwegian market Resurs Bank is now the front runner when it comes to enabling new solutions to simplify online shopping for their customers. Resurs Bank have continued to show a strong dedication and focus by delivering the best customer experience for online shopping, and we are looking forward to deliver further solutions together with Resurs Bank to help simplifying customers everyday shopping”, says Soren Babra, CEO and Founder of Payair Technologies AB.
