Acceptance Matters to Corporations, and We Can Prove It!


International View: In Search Of Acceptance

Acceptance Matters, and now we know by how much

When it comes to a corporate card program, global acceptance is the most important factor*. Not only does MasterCard have more than twice the global acceptance locations as American Express**, but also delivers accessible global data for an added advantage.

Payment can be complicated in the international arena. Some countries traditionally rely on cash payment for air, hotel and other large expenses. In fact, 53% of international business travelers have been caught in an awkward situation due to corporate card non-acceptance*.

Increasing Supplier card acceptance for business-to-business (B2B) purchasing has for many Issuers and Acquirers been perceived to be an uphill battle over the previous decade. With the prevalence of electronic funds transfers (EFT), and continued support for check payment, Suppliers' commitment to traditional payment methods continues to remain the last great inhibitor to card usage in the B2B space.

MasterCard, partnering with Kaiser Associates, studied Supplier card acceptance, seeking to answer two key questions:
1. What drives card acceptance decision-making?
2. What is the net financial impact associated with card acceptance?

Read the White Papers, contact your MasterCard representative and see what Acceptance can do for you!
