OUR TAKE
Mastercard is piloting an enhanced subscription management system in the U.S. This move has potential to offer customers the convenience of managing, suspending, and restarting subscriptions in a single platform. Centralising subscription management provides users with a unified platform to manage all their subscriptions in one place, which enhances convenience and simplifies the user experience. This centralised approach also allows for better tracking and oversight of subscription expenses, leading to improved financial management for users. Centralisation enables companies to implement more robust security measures and better protect user data, reducing the risk of breaches or unauthorised access.
