Kum & Go to Implement MasterCard PayPass

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa -- The Kum & Go convenience store chain will implement MasterCard Worldwide PayPass contactless payment option at all of its more than 450 convenience stores, MasterCard stated.

"As our name implies, our business is built on our ability to provide customers with superior service and maximum convenience, which includes adopting advanced payment methods," Kyle Krause, president and CEO of Kum & Go, said in a statement. "Whether customers come into our stores for a quick bite to eat or to fill up their gas tanks, with MasterCard PayPass, they now have an even faster way to pay and go."

Kum & Go customers will be able to pay for purchases by tapping a PayPass-enabled MasterCard card or device on a PayPass reader. The technology also does not require customers to sign receipts for purchases less than $25, according to the company.

"Focused on consumer expediency and satisfaction, convenience store retailers like Kum & Go provide an ideal setting for MasterCard PayPass since the technology is designed to provide greater speed and convenience at the point-of-sale," T.J. Sharkey, senior vice president of U.S. Merchant Sales for MasterCard Worldwide, said in a statement.
