Gain Access to Maestro® Cardholders Worldwide

Maestro’s growth in Europe is rapid, with more than 310 million cards carrying the Maestro brand to date1. Consumers in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Spain, Belgium and Austria can already complete online purchases using their Maestro cards.

In response to consumer demand, Maestro is currently enabling its entire European debit card portfolio for e-commerce transactions. By mid-2011, all these 310 million cards will be enabled for e-Commerce, representing an opportunity you can’t afford to miss.

These cards also include domestic debit cards that are co-branded with the Maestro logo; thus, your Maestro card acceptance automatically enables your acceptance of Laser Card in Ireland, and soon Bancomat cards in Italy and Mister Cash cards in Belgium.

With the rapid explosion of new payment methods in the online marketplace, both merchants and consumers have multiple payment choices. What makes Maestro the right one for your business? Unlike many of the online payment options, Maestro is a known and trusted brand to the majority of European consumers—and it’s already in their wallets.
