ATLANTA–September 11, 2015– Global Payments Inc. (NYSE: GPN), a leading worldwide provider of payment technology services, is pleased to announce that it will offer its merchants in the United States the ability to accept Android Pay™, which will offer a range of choices for Android mobile users.
Users can simply unlock their device, place it near a contactless terminal and the payment is sent for authorization. Android Pay is designed to align with industry tokenization standards and not send actual credit or debit card numbers, but instead securely create virtual account numbers for transactions. Details of a customer’s card information are not released to the merchant, and customers are notified immediately when a purchase is made.
“The addition of Android Pay is another great step for Global Payments in bringing a digital solution designed to be simple, secure and innovative to our merchants and their consumers,” said Frank T. Young, SVP, Global Product and Innovation. “Global Payments has the experience to leverage these solutions, and we’re excited that our merchants will be able to access mobile payments through Android Pay.”
