HONG KONG & ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Global Payments Inc. (NYSE: GPN), a leading worldwide provider of
payment technology services, is pleased to offer merchants in Hong Kong
the ability to accept Android Pay™, which will enable more payment
choices for Android mobile users in-store and in-app.
Android Pay is a digital mobile wallet which is easy to setup 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. Actual credit or debit card numbers will not be
sent, and virtual account numbers are securely created 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.
Global Payments allows Hong Kong retail store and mobile app merchants
to accept credit and debit card payments from customers with Android
Pay. Our in-store merchants can offer customers the convenience of
digital wallet payment through contactless readers. Meanwhile, mobile
app merchants can minimize cart abandonment rate as customers can skip
filling out lengthy shipping and billing details manually.
"Residents of Hong Kong love mobile technology — with nearly 80% owning
a smartphone — and are some of the fastest adopters of new products and
technology in the world," said Leonie Valentine, Managing Director of
Sales and Operations, Google Hong Kong. "We're excited to bring the
simplicity and security of mobile payments to Global Payments' merchants
in Hong Kong with Android Pay. People can now easily tap and pay with
Android smartphones in stores and in apps when they're on-the-go."
"We are thrilled to support the further global expansion of Android Pay
in Hong Kong," said Frank T. Young, SVP, Global Product and Innovation.
"We look forward to enabling more physical store and mobile commerce
merchants in Hong Kong to take advantage of this omnichannel payment
