Yandex.Money MasterCard: Payments in One Tap

July 24, 2013

On 24 July, Yandex.Money in partnership with MasterCard will start issuing a new version of its bank card. Now the Yandex.Money MasterCard is available with MasterCard PayPass technology, which allows users to make payments simply by hovering their card over the PayPass terminal. If the purchase is less than 1,000 rubles, you won’t even need to enter the card’s PIN or sign the receipt. Hundreds of thousands of stores, restaurants, gas stations, and parking garages all over the world are equipped with PayPass terminals (you can find nearby locations on MasterCard’s website).

Yandex.Money bank cards can still be issued for free. Users only pay for postage. There’s no commission on payments or annual servicing. The card is issued by Yandex.Money’s partner, Tinkoff Credit Systems, but the card’s balance is still users’ Yandex.Money e-wallet balance. Yandex.Money began issuing its branded bank cards in April 2012. Approximately 150 thousand cards had been ordered as of July of this year.

Our card is especially convenient for travelers. They just need to add money to their e-wallets to add money to their card. If you run out of money while away on vacation, you can ask friends or relatives to add money to your account at the nearest Euroset store or a Sberbank ATM. They’ll only need your account number to add money commission free. Money is credited to the card’s account in a matter of seconds.
