ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–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.”
