About MasterCard

MasterCard is a payment processing network that works with financial institutions to provide credit cards to customers; it does not issue credit cards directly like some of its competitors. Simply put, they process the payments between the merchant and the financial institution.

There are three tiers of cards issued under the MasterCard brand that have different lines of credit, rewards, and other features. These are known as Standard, World, and World Elite.

Standard MasterCard

The Standard MasterCard is great for everyday purchases. However, it doesn't carry as many rewards or perks as other MasterCard options.

World MasterCard

World Master Card is an excellent card for travelers and explorers due to the attached travel rewards.

World Elite MasterCard

The top of the line MasterCard available with the best features and perks, the World Elite MasterCard is the best choice for a customer looking for optimal purchasing power.

How to Sign Up for a MasterCard Credit Card

As noted above, MasterCard does not directly issue credit cards. However, you can submit applications for them to financial institutions and retailers, in-person or by responding to a mailer.

Sign Up Online

To apply for a MasterCard online, visit the financial institution web page and see what cards it offers. Then decide which MasterCard will work best for you and follow these steps:

  1. Click on "Apply" or "Apply Now."
  2. Enter the required information. Some information the site you will ask you for includes:
  • Full legal name
  • Social Security number
  • Date of birth
  • Annual gross income
  • Address
  • Submit your application. In a few minutes, you will have results telling you if you have been approved or denied a MasterCard.
  • In-Person Application

    You can apply for a MasterCard at your financial institution's local branch office. Additionally, retailers that partner with MasterCard for their store cards will accept applications at the register. You will need to provide the same information as you would when applying online. In addition, they will ask for your photo identification.

    Using a Mailer to Sign Up

    Yet another way to apply for a MasterCard is to fill out and mail in an application. These applications often come to you in the form of a mailer stating you have met pre-qualification or pre-approval screenings. Complete the application with all the information requested and send it back to the financial institution in the envelope provided. Within a few weeks, the provider will notify you of the results of your application and send your card if your application is approved.

    Applying for a MasterCard is a simple process. Signing up for a MasterCard credit card through a retailer or financial institution partner gives you many options to choose from and opportunities to apply. For more information, contact MasterCard customer support here.
