Who doesn’t love a spot of online shopping? I do! Homewares, clothes, cleaning products, books, my weekly veggie box: the list goes on! We’re all busy and online shopping is super convenient because you can do it whenever you want. For me, this often means from the comfort of my couch, with a cuppa, at the end of a long day of multi-tasking.
Now this next confession risks making me sound uber lazy but bear with me. Sometimes, late at night, I’ll get all the way to the online checkout then abandon my basket because I can’t be bothered to get up and find my handbag and retrieve my card details. Bad, I know, but a girl gets tired! This is why the new MasterPass digital wallet network is awesome for me. It securely accesses the details of all my cards in my secure bank digital wallet (and it’s free) and makes it super easy for me to pay however I like without having to find my handbag or remember long card numbers (I’m a words person!). Even better I can use it whether I’m on my trusty MacBook Air, my phone or my iPad. Love it! It also saves multiple shipping addresses, so no need to re-enter all that info every time either. Simply shop, click and checkout.
MasterPass is brought to us by MasterCard, which is clearly an established ans trusted brand. They’ve partnered with banks across the world, not just here in Australia (because let’s face it, most of us buy a lot online from overseas) so they can offer security measures like zero liability. This means your money will be refunded in the case of fraud. So when you see a ‘Buy with MasterPass’ symbol you know you’re safe to buy , not matter where the product is in the world, and pretty much all you have to do is enter your password.
I know, it’s making online shopping dangerously easy!
It didn’t take me more than a few minutes to set up my bank digital wallet and replenish my impressive coffee table book collection with some new additions from Booktopia (you may have seen my Instagram post a few days ago and wondered what I was getting at?).
Stores currently accepting MasterPass include Webjet, Jeanswest, OzSale, Menulog and 2nds World. Many more are due to be added next year.
