 Introduction

There are now 4 billion mobile phone connections worldwide, according to the GSMA, the leading global trade association for wireless carriers. And the GSMA estimates that mobile phone connections will number 6 billion worldwide by 2013. This rapid growth calls for a forum where everyone in the mobile industry can come together, share information, and stay up to date on the latest developments.

That's why we created the MasterCard Mobile Partner Program - a global resource center designed to foster knowledge-sharing and partnership opportunities within the mobile industry. The program connects vendors to each other and MasterCard in the mobile space on a global basis in order to support the delivery of mobile financial services.



  MasterCard PayPass Ready identifier

The MasterCard PayPass Ready identifier is a way for mobile device manufacturers to differentiate products that have undergone testing for MasterCard PayPass and received a Letter of Approval. It also promotes to consumers that the device will be capable of contactless payment transactions when enabled with a MasterCard PayPass account. Find out more here.
