NatWest enables Click to Pay for Mastercard users in the UK
By Gloria Methri
NatWest Group has become the first UK bank to enable Click to Pay for all its customers with a Mastercard debit card, to make online shopping simpler and more secure in the country. Customers with a NatWest, Royal Bank of Scotland, or Ulster Bank Mastercard have been registered for the service.
Click to Pay is a digital wallet that works on any device and allows users to create a single profile where they can store multiple payment cards.
NatWest teamed up with Mastercard to automatically register its customers, who can use the service without signing up, wherever they see the Click to Pay logo. They won’t need to enter their payment details and will be protected by multiple layers of security. Customers with a NatWest credit card will have Click to Pay enabled in the next few months.
By eliminating the need to memorise a password or go through the rigmarole of entering personal information and card details, Click to Pay makes the checkout process quick and easy for shoppers, all while offering them enhanced fraud protections and peace of mind.
After converting NatWest Group’s retail and business debit cards to Mastercard, the two companies are working together to offer greater choice and payment innovation to cardholders. Besides offering Click to Pay to its customers, NatWest is working with Mastercard to use AI technology to stop scams before funds leave a victim’s account.
Salim Secretary, Head of Payment Schemes, Partnerships and Commercial at NatWest said, “Keeping our customers safe when shopping online is paramount. Click to Pay combines advanced security with speed and convenience. We have made it as easy as possible for customers to start using Click to Pay – there is no sign-up required and the service can be used on any site with the Click to Pay logo.”
Kelly Devine, President of the UK, and Ireland at Mastercard, said, “Most people still use guest checkouts when they shop online, so Click to Pay saves hassle and the need to remember lots of different passwords. Around one in three consumer debit cards in the UK are now issued on Mastercard’s network, and we are working with our partners, like NatWest, to make sure their customers have access to the very best payment innovation and technology.”
