We’ve taken another step towards achieving our mission of financial inclusion by working with Google Pay – we’ve integrated our award-winning, end-to-end platform with Google’s payment functionality across our entire proposition.
Google Pay is the fast, simple way to pay in millions of places – online and in stores. It brings together everything consumers need at the checkout and makes it easy for them to keep track of purchases and redeem loyalty points.
For the first time, businesses powered by the Canvas white label banking and payments proposition will be able to offer their customers Google Pay as part of a wider functionality including Faster Payments, SEPA, and contactless debit cards.
Google Pay will also be available to Credit Union members through Contis’ Engage banking and payments proposition, providing them with the latest mobile banking technology to help them manage their finances and shop securely.
We have a successful history of enabling solutions for financially-excluded customers, who may have struggled to access bank accounts in the past. By making Google Pay available to this community, our latest addition brings increased convenience to its existing range of features such as budgeting tools, cash-back programmes, direct debits and contactless debit cards.
Commenting on the launch Flavia Alzetta, Chief Executive Officer, said:
“Integrating the latest mobile payment technology into our end-to-end platform will benefit customers across our entire portfolio, including Engage users, by allowing them to use their mobiles to shop in store or online, and track their purchases.
“We are delighted that another technology giant has chosen to partner with Contis and join us in our mission to make alternative payments possible and solidify our commitment to facilitate financial inclusion for the most underserved consumers.
“By providing Engage customers with Google Pay, we will reduce the burden they carry on a day-to-day basis and take another step towards achieving financial inclusion.”
