About Mastercard New Payment Platforms 

Mastercard’s global payments network connects consumers, financial institutions, merchants, governments and businesses in more than 210 countries and territories.

For nearly 50 years, we’ve been using our technology and expertise to make payments

safer, simpler and smarter. Leveraging this network expertise, our account-to-account business provides domestic and cross-border solutions that keep pace with the way we live, work and do business: invisibly, intuitively, intelligently.
