Mastercard and Samsung partner for Pay on Demand

Mastercard announced on Thursday it has formed a global partnership with Samsung in order to enable digital access to consumers and small businesses in emerging markets through its extensible Pay on Demand platform.

According to Mastercard, the Pay on Demand platform is designed to accelerate digital inclusion by bringing together financial institutions, original equipment manufacturers and telcos to solve issues that have limited device financing in emerging markets.
