Ulster Bank has announced that its customers can now use Android Pay at contactless payment terminals to buy goods and services in pubs, shops and restaurants.

Android phone users will be able to swiftly and securely make a payment by waving their mobile over a contactless payment terminal.

There will be no transaction charges or additional fees for using Android Pay.

Away from shops, customers will be able to use Android Pay to make ‘in-app purchases’ taking away the need to fill out their full card details every time they want to buy something directly through their mobile.

Android Pay doesn’t share actual credit or debit card numbers with stores. If a phone is ever lost or stolen, customers can simply use Android Device Manager to instantly lock their device from anywhere, secure it with a new password, or wipe it clean of personal information.

“We've seen a great response to Android Pay in Ireland since the launch in December and now we’re excited to bring the simplicity and security of mobile payments to Ulster Bank customers with Android Pay” Pali Bhat, director, product management, Android Pay said.
