02-May-2017 SkyBus, operator of Melbourne’s express airport transport service, has announced its partnership with Mastercard to offer Masterpass, providing customers a fast, simple and secure way to pay for fares online.

Masterpass is a digital payment solution that simplifies the checkout process. Customers can add any major credit, debit or prepaid card to their Masterpass wallet and keep the information secured for future mobile and online payments. When booking SkyBus tickets, travellers simply need to select the Masterpass button to finalise their purchase.

For a limited time, SkyBus customers booking Melbourne City Express, St Kilda Express or Avalon City Express with Masterpass will receive $5 off when they enter the promo code MASTERPASS.

Speaking on the new payment option, Michael Sewards, Director of SkyBus said a high proportion of tickets are purchased online.

Mr Sewards added, “partnering with Mastercard was an obvious choice and a step forward in simplifying the online transaction experience. With Masterpass, we’ve made the experience much more seamless by eliminating the need for customers to fill out tedious online checkout forms or spend time searching through wallets for credit cards.”
