By Tamilla Mammadova – Trend:

MasterCard company will seek to facilitate the use of modern payment technologies in Georgia, Igor Stepanov, Regional Director of MasterCard in Georgia and Central Asia told Trend.

"The use of digital technologies will become even more accessible for tourists visiting Georgia, MasterCard partner banks and businesses," he noted.

According to Stepanov, with ‘Tap on Phone’ project launch, each merchant can transform their android smartphone into a terminal and accept cashless payments, which takes acceptance development to unprecedented level country-wise.

"Besides that, 'MasterCard Tourism Insight' platform access has been granted to Georgian national tourism administration, which enables users an innovative, 360-degree analysis of modern travel, both before and after its completion," he added.

Stepanov said 'MasterCard Tourism Insight' combines publicly available search engine and aggregate purchasing trends into one easy-to-use technology.

"We at MasterCard do a lot together with our partner banks to develop a "digital" lifestyle: in particular, Georgian cardholders got new opportunities for digital payments with the launch of the first NFC-wallets for smartphone payments in the country," Stepanov noted.
