Edenred France, which invented the `Ticket Restaurant` meal vouchers, has launched a mobile payment pilot with MasterCard and mobile operator Orange France.

Edenred launched the NFC-enabled Ticket Restaurant payment card in April 2014 and now aims to allow its customers to pay directly with their mobile phone. Customers can use the system in affiliated restaurants equipped with contactless payment terminals. Advantages include consult their account in real time and locate nearby places where the vouchers are accepted.

In recent news, MasterCard has reached an agreement with Russian authorities to process its payments in Russia.
