Ingenico Group, global leader in seamless payment, announced today that its smart terminals will be able to process Android Pay transactions in the United States once it launches later this summer. Ingenico Group smart terminals also support Android Pay’s loyalty and offers functionality, used to track merchant loyalty program transactions and redeem coupons via NFC.
Virtually all Ingenico Group terminals implemented in the U.S. by large and medium tier merchants are NFC capable, and many of those merchants have already enabled this capability in order to accept other types of mobile wallet payments. The majority of smaller merchants who are using Ingenico Group solutions are now receiving NFC-ready terminals.
“Android Pay was unveiled today at Google I/O 2015 and we expect it to quickly become a popular payment method for Android users,” said Greg Burch, VP of Mobility, Business Development & ISV Relationships for Ingenico Group. “Ingenico Group strives to simplify payment for merchants and help them to accept multiple payment methods including new payment alternatives as soon as they’re made available. We are very happy that the majority of our merchant customers already have everything they need to accept Android Pay.”
