ABN AMRO will give customers the option to pay with Google Pay via the bank’s app in the second quarter, the bank announced on Tuesday.
“With Google Pay, customers will soon be able to quickly and easily make purchases in stores, in apps and on websites via their Android phone within the ABN AMRO app, without additional costs,” said the bank.
According to the bank, customers are in great demand for mobile payment options that work on the Android operating system. Google previously announced that the need to pay digitally and contactless in stores has increased due to the corona pandemic.
Bunq, N26 and Revolut were the first banks to offer Google Pay in the Netherlands in November. Through these online banks, Google Pay can already be used in all shops that accept payments with Mastercard and Visa.
The Google Pay app is not yet available in the Netherlands. Instead, the payment service is integrated into the apps of the respective banks.
