It’s App, Tap And Go At ATMs Thanks To Mastercard And Diebold Nixdorf


“Most of us know the routine at the ATM: swipe or insert, tap a few buttons and grab your cash. That, we decided, wasn’t good enough for the millions of people who use an ATM every day. So, we took the latest technology, found a way to make a process many took for granted even easier and introduced Cardless ATM powered by Mastercard®. A new, mobile experience will bring all the conveniences of digital payments – increased speed, security and transparency – to cash withdrawals. And we just set out to test the waters in a big way, with one of the largest ATM manufacturers in the world, Diebold Nixdorf.”
