Consumers are eager to take advantage of the most innovative, speediest payment experience, so Apple Pay is an ideal match for MasterCard, said Sherri Haymond, Group Head of Digital Channels at MasterCard. Haymond added that the new payment experience is another step toward a secure, cashless society. Owners of the new iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch will be able to use their MasterCard credit or debit cards from participating banks directly through Apple Pay. Haymond said consumers visiting stores can pay by simply holding their iPhone near a contactless reader with their finger on Touch ID and their transaction will be authenticated.
