Google brings mobile payment to the UK

mobile payment

Google is bringing its mobile payment service for Android smartphones to the UK, in a move that will expand its competition with Apple’s rival system. Android Pay will allow smartphone users to take advantage of payment apps provided by banks, credit card providers and retailers to either buy goods in stores or using retailer websites. The service will support MasterCard and Visa as well as many of the UK’s banks… The UK is seen by analysts as an attractive market for mobile payments given most people have a smartphone and are increasingly becoming familiar with other contactless ways of paying such as using a debit card. The country also has a relatively high proportion of retailers and coffee shops equipped with the necessary contactless equipment to enable mobile payments.
