TORONTO & ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Global Payments Inc. (NYSE: GPN), a leading worldwide provider of
payment technology services, is pleased to offer merchants in Canada the
ability to accept Android Pay™, which will enable more payment choices
for Android mobile users in-store, in-app and on the web.
Easy to set up and use, customers can download the Android
Pay app and add an eligible credit or debit card. Simply tap the
Android smartphone on any contactless terminal and the payment is sent
for authorization. Android Pay is designed to align with industry
tokenization standards, which means it does not share customers' actual
credit or debit card numbers with the merchant when they pay in stores.
Instead, Android Pay uses a virtual account number to represent the
card. For additional security, a user's Android devices can be
configured to provide immediate notification of transactions made with
the user's Android Pay account. And if your Android phone is ever lost
or stolen, you can simply use Google's Find My Device feature to
instantly lock your device from anywhere, secure it with a new password,
or even wipe it clean of your personal information. To check device
compatibility with Android Pay, go to the Google
"Following the successful enablement in several of our other regions,

Canada," said Frank T. Young, SVP, Global Product and Innovation. "We're
excited to be part of the global expansion of Android Pay and look
forward to enabling more merchants to take advantage of this payment
