NatWest mobile app Android contactless payment

Android phone users will now be able to safely, swiftly and securely make payments.

 

This follows the launch of Apple Pay last year and means that Android phone users will now be able to safely, swiftly and securely make a payment by waving their mobile over a contactless payment terminal. This saves customers from having to use cash or to use their card every time they want to make a payment.

Away from shops, customers can also use Android Pay to make ‘in-app purchases’ so that they don’t need to fill out their full card details every time they want to buy something directly through their mobile.

Commenting Simon McNamara, Royal Bank of Scotland, Chief Administrative Officer said:

"Android Pay is a great way for our customers when out and about shopping to quickly, easily and securely make a purchase with just a tap of their mobile. It will save many of our customers from having to carry cash around to make small purchases and will often remove the need for more cumbersome card payments. It’s just another way in which we’re helping to make banking with us simpler and more convenient.”
