MasterCard is enabling acceptance of chip cards, contactless payments, and QkR! with MasterPass at the Arnold Palmer Invitational Presented by MasterCard. MasterCard and the PGA TOUR debuted contactless payment acceptance at the Waste Management Phoenix Open in January.
QkR! with MasterPass will allow fans to order and pay for concessions at the event directly from their Android or iOS device. The app is powered by MasterPass, a digital wallet from MasterCard that stores payment information in one convenient and secure place. Onsite, fans will also be able use the app to make a donation to the Arnold Palmer Medical Center Foundation.
When a chip credit card is scanned at the retailer, there are two data pieces that are used for authorization to confirm that the cardholder is indeed the person making that purchase.
Cardholders who use their MasterCard cards onsite during the Arnold Palmer Invitational – which begins Thursday, March 19th on The Golf Channel – may also get a Priceless Surprise!
