MINNEAPOLIS–U.S. Bank has worked with Google to make U.S. Bank cardmembers among the first to have access to Android Pay for credit and debit card transactions when the service launches later this year. This is the latest in a series of innovations from U.S. Bank to make payments simple, more convenient and secure.
“Android Pay gives our customers added value by providing another way to use their U.S. Bank credit and debit cards to pay for purchases with their mobile devices.”
“We’re proud to be helping our customers tap into exciting new ways to pay,” said Shailesh Kotwal, vice chairman and head of U.S. Bank Payment Services. “Android Pay gives our customers added value by providing another way to use their U.S. Bank credit and debit cards to pay for purchases with their mobile devices.”
“Mobile payments are a big priority for Google so we’ve been working with U.S. Bank to help provide a seamless experience across a wide range of phones and stores,” said Pali Bhat, director of product management at Google. “Android Pay will offer people further simplicity, security and choice when paying for things with their Android phones.”
With Android Pay, customers can use their Android phones to make purchases in stores and in apps. It offers a fast, simple and secure way to use a card to buy things in-app or in-store—all without pulling out a physical wallet. It’s a secure, mobile purchasing system that works with Android devices running KitKat (4.4) or higher.
U.S. Bank will announce details about the service later in 2015.
