About Mastercard

As a global credit card conglomerate, Mastercard’s primary business is to process payment transactions between merchant banks and the purchasers’ credit unions or card-issuing banks who use the Mastercard brand credit, debit or prepaid cards for purchases.

Established as Interbank in 1966 by a cooperative of several regional bankcard groups, Mastercard came as a response to Bank of America’s BankAmericard. The cooperative grew to more than 25,000 financial institutions before being publicly traded in 2006. Mastercard employed close to 13,4000 in 2017 and posted a net income amounting to US$3.915 billion in the same year.
