MasterCard has announced that BP / Aral will begin deploying MasterCard® PayPass™ contactless payments terminals across its forecourts in the United Kingdom, Germany and Switzerland over the next two years.

The development means that consumers with MasterCard PayPass and Maestro® PayPass™ enabled cards will be able to ‘Tap & Go™’ to pay for everyday purchases up to the value of £15 in the UK, €25 in Germany and 40 Swiss Francs in Switzerland at BP / Aral forecourt shops across the three countries, simply by tapping their card on a PayPass terminal at the point of sale. They can also continue to use the same cards for higher value transactions, authenticated with a PIN or signature.

Javier Perez, President of MasterCard Europe says: “As PayPass momentum builds across Europe, we’re delighted to be working with a household name like BP to grow the awareness and acceptance of contactless in three key markets, making consumers’ lives easier by enabling them to simply Tap & Go to make quick, convenient and secure purchases.”
