Everything Everywhere signs five year deal with Mastercard – NFC payments galore


Everything Everywhere, the parent company of T-Mobile and Orange has signed a five year deal with Mastercard to enable digital payments on the two networks. The plans involve rolling out NFC payment options at over 100,000 retailers in the UK.

Everything Everywhere chief marketing officer Gerry McQuade said: “Working with MasterCard is an important step in making mobile contactless payments more widely available for our 27 million customers. By moving our existing co-branded card offers onto mobile devices, we are closer to a world where our customers will be able to use their phone to pay for travel to work, pay for small purchases and take advantage of loyalty rewards from their favourite retail outlets.”

MasterCard UK and Ireland president Marion King added: “We’re delighted to be working with Everything Everywhere, the UK’s leading mobile operator. MasterCard’s vision is of a world beyond cash, where consumers and small businesses alike can benefit from simple payments using smart technology. The partnership we are announcing today builds on our strong heritage in the mobile payments space and ensures that MasterCard remains the partner of choice for leading businesses in the UK.”

Although NFC has been around for some time now it is not in frequent use in our everyday lives. Maybe this will change in the not to distant future?
