Financial super-app, Revolut, has launched Google Pay for customers in Austria, Bulgaria, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Netherlands, Portugal and Romania. Revolut will be among the first financial services companies to offer Google Pay as a service within its mobile app.
The contactless payment platform enables Android users to make fast and simple payments online, in-store, in-app and more. It is a safe and secure service already recognised by merchants worldwide and protected by an advanced security infrastructure.
From today, Revolut customers with Android phones will have the ability to set up Google Pay within the ‘Cards’ section of the Revolut app. They can add their Revolut Mastercard or Visa card into their phone’s digital wallet with a single tap and start spending instantly, even before the physical card arrives in the post.
Google Pay offers seamless and secure payments wherever contactless payments are accepted. Customers can also check out in hundreds of apps that display the buy with Google Pay button, without ever having to enter their payment information. The platform doesn’t share customers’ actual card number with vendors in shops or online, so sensitive information stays secure.
Our 13 million global customers are fast moving away from cash in the majority of the markets we operate in, and this has accelerated since the start of the year, so launching Google Pay in these 10 new markets is a very positive step forward in enabling our customers to safely use their money in the way that they want to. Our ultimate goal is to build the world’s first truly global financial super-app, and giving our customers tools such as Google Pay in order to make payments quickly, conveniently and securely is vital to achieving this.
