Drug chain Rite Aid Corp. yesterday said it began accepting MasterCard PayPass contactless payments to quicken transactions and add a convenient method of payment.

In addition to traditional magnetic-stripe payment cards, Rite Aid will accept MasterCard PayPass at its check-out counters in 3,800 of its nearly 5,000 stores.

To use the system, shoppers tap their PayPass-enabled MasterCard card or device on the PayPass reader at the check-out. Customers don't have to sign receipts for purchases under $25.

According to MasterCard, there are nearly 37 million MasterCard PayPass cards and devices in use in 24 countries, and PayPass is currently accepted globally at more than 122,000 merchant locations.
