Mastercard Worldwide, or Mastercard incorporated, is an international payment system and transnational financial corporation that unifies 22,000 financial organizations in 210 countries around the world.

The company is currently headquartered in New York and Mastercard’s CEO is Ajaypal Singh Banga. The main activity of Mastercard is the processing of payments between the acquired banks, which serve as the place of trades, and other credit corporations that use Mastercard’s debit and credit cards.
