Android Pay steals a march on Samsung Pay

Friday 11 September 2015 | 13:32 CET | Author: Bart Garvelink | Background
Google has launched Android Pay on 11 September, (just) beating rival service Samsung Pay, announced for 28 September. Both are ready to go ahead with Apple Pay. From the end of this month, all three mobile payment platforms will be operational in the US. These services use the same NFC-capable payment terminals at point of sale, for cards issued by the same banks. While Apple is the current market leader in mobile payments, Android Pay looks likely to catch up soon. Google may edge out Samsung as well. Android Pay will work on a larger number of devices across mobile carriers.
