Carta Selected as Processing Partner for Mastercard Consortium to Deliver Contactless Payments at Events

In Digital Transactional Processing, News, Prepaid by Carta Worldwide

Carta is pleased to announce that the Company has been selected as the processing partner and member of a consortium to provide contactless payment services for numerous events supported by MasterCard.


Cash has for a long time been the ubiquitous method of payment at events and festivals despite the obvious shortcomings and inconvenience of managing large amounts of cash. Coupled with the high cost of security and theft risk, there is a significant demand for more convenient and secure payments.

The advent of contactless payment technology linked to a prepaid payment device has opened up the opportunity to allow the vision of a truly cashless event to become a reality.

Carta is delighted to be working with the selected program managers that will be the preferred providers of contactless payment services for MasterCard Europe.
