My card was declined by the merchant, what should I do?
Check the reason for the decline on your receipt. Check the expiry date of your cards. If the card information is correct, try to remove and reload the card, otherwise it's best to call the bank or financial institution that issued the card to see why it was declined. There is usually a customer service number for the issuing bank on the back of the card.
What if the merchant doesn't accept the card I want to use at checkout?
Although we allow you to save all major cards in your wallet, some merchants may not accept all cards. If a card is not accepted, you will not be able to choose this card at checkout, and the card icon will be disabled.
Do I still earn my card rewards points?
Yes, you will continue to earn rewards points for card spend as you do for using a card machine. The Masterpass app may also offer you additional rewards if you register on the app for Games and rewards.
For my safety
Is Masterpass safe to use?
Absolutely. It's our top priority to keep your personal information safe, and our secure servers are built and maintained to do just that.
What should I do if my mobile device is lost or stolen?
Don't worry, your card information is still safe and secure with Masterpass and is not stored on your device. For extra security, in case your wallet password is the same as other unsecured passwords on your mobile device, you should change your password. Contact your network service provider and have your SIM card blocked. Once the phone has been replaced you will need to download the app again and set it up to transact.
Tip: Never enter your PIN into someone else's mobile device. Your PIN should be entered only into your own mobile device and only within the Masterpass app during the Masterpass transaction that you have initiated. Make sure that no one else can see your PIN when you enter it.
