Mastercard SpendingPulse™

Mastercard SpendingPulse™ is a macroeconomic indicator of retail sales measuring in-store and online retail sales across all forms of payment. Mastercard SpendingPulse™ solutions answer key business questions by using anonymized aggregate sales activity in the Mastercard payments network, coupled with survey-based estimates for other payment types, such as cash and check. Organizations use Mastercard SpendingPulse™ to inform forecasting, performance benchmarking, executive briefings, marketing, promotional and real estate decisions, and more. Key business questions Mastercard SpendingPulse™ addresses include:

  • How does my organization’s performance compare to that of the industry?
  • What are key upcoming sales days for consumers, and how can my organization best capitalize on them?
  • How are consumers spending across channels (online vs. in-store), and how will that change?
  • Based on historical performance, growth, density and volume of spend, where should we open a new location?

Places is a Mastercard dataset that provides a comprehensive view of all merchant locations accepting Mastercard credit cards in both the physical and digital world. Mastercard Places data is captured from aggregated and anonymized transaction data and matched to best-in-class third party location data listings. Then, Mastercard appends unique metadata, such as Cash Back or “in business” flags, which are derived from the transaction data. Organizations use Places to enhance their reporting and mapping capabilities, inform business development and marketing opportunities, drive real estate decisions, and more.
