Mastercard has unveiled a new app designed to streamline travel and business expenses, with HSBC Australia and Westpac being the first banks to offer this service, according to Finextra. The app allows virtual commercial cards to be seamlessly added to digital wallets, providing convenience and efficiency for banks’ commercial clients.

According to Chad Wallace, Mastercard’s global head of commercial solutions, the app responds to the increasing demand for fast and secure payment experiences. Wallace stated, «Businesses worldwide are seeking fast and secure payment experiences, where payments can be made with just a click or tap, and finance teams can experience automatic reconciliation.»

The app leverages Mastercard’s virtual card and tokenization platforms, offering enhanced data, security, and spend controls within a single interface. John Scott, head of global payments at HSBC Australia, emphasized the importance of mobile wallet solutions in today’s digital landscape. He highlighted the growing trend of mobile wallet usage, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region, which accounts for over half of global digital payment transactions.

Scott noted, «As contactless payments continue to surge, it’s important that corporate clients have access to best-in-class payment solutions to keep their business secure and take advantage of the increased efficiency offered by the latest technologies.»

With its focus on simplicity, security, and efficiency, Mastercard’s new virtual card app is set to revolutionize the way businesses manage their travel and business expenses.
