First Data supports Android Pay in the UK

Following its successful launch in the US last year, Google is bringing its Android Pay service to the UK. The arrival of this technology is set to further boost awareness and adoption of mobile and digital payment options. 

Android Pay is a mobile payment solution that offers consumers further simplicity, security and choice when paying for things with and within their Android phones. Google is working with a wide range of well-known banks, retailers, payment schemes and providers to support the launch of Android Pay in the UK. 

As in the US, First Data is continuing to work closely with Google in the UK to provide processing solutions for Android Pay that ensure a safe, secure transaction at the point of sale, enabling payment with a single, contactless tap. 

First Data’s market-leading eCommerce solution, Payeezy™, is fully integrated with Android Pay so that developers and merchants can enable Android Pay users with the ability with a single touch and seamless, more secure checkout within apps – meaning consumers won’t have to enter payment or address details when they’re ready to checkout addressing the major cause of abandonment in mobile shopping.
