One to manage all. One to find all. One to gather and link all in a simple move. Sounds like a description of the ring from Tolkien’s novel? Maybe a little; however, we’re talking about smartphone and three applications that will enable you to make payments faster than ever before.
The creators of the electronic wallet didn’t forget about security, either. When shopping online, you don’t need to enter a long card number any more. Mastercard guards your payment information, and your account won’t be charged with any unauthorized transaction. If you think Masterpass is reserved only for Mastercard clients, we have a pleasant surprise for you. Yes, the application was created by a financial organization recognized worldwide, but it also allows you to add Visa cards. The registration process consists of just 4 steps. As you can see, the creators thought of comfort at each and every stage.
What do you need to do to have PayPass payments within your phone’s reach? Apart from downloading the app – not much. You open the app and take a picture of your card – then, Google Pay reads its details and a moment later you receive a text message from your bank with a verification passcode. Simple.
a. You call your friend and wake him up.
b. You go through your transaction history and waste your time.
c. You tell yourself you’ll ask his number in the morning, and then you forget about the whole thing.
These scenarios aren’t very optimistic. Luckily, now you can use a lifeline – BLIK, and the phone transfer option. How does it work? You open your bank’s mobile app, you go to the transfers tab (or payments – depending on the bank), you click on the above-mentioned option and select from your contacts the person you want to transfer money to. After entering the amount, you confirm the transaction with a PIN, and that’s it. And the account number? Who would worry about that today ;) Mobile payments are developing dynamically and we don’t know what “tomorrow” will bring; however, we know one thing for sure today – Masterpass, Google Pay and BLIK form a well-oiled trio, which will work splendidly on your phone.
