first direct brings added payment options to customers with android pay

18 May 2016

From today (18 May) first direct customers can now use Android Pay to make quick and secure payments in the UK wherever they see the contactless or Android Pay symbol.

first direct has worked with Google on Android Pay, ensuring its customers are among the first to have access to the new service.

Customers with a compatible Android device can download the app from the Google Play store and add their first direct card details to start using Android Pay. If a customer already uses a first direct card for Google Play, they can confirm to use this card for Android Pay too.

Android Pay will provide a more convenient way of making payments at almost 460,000 terminals up and down the country.

The introduction of Android Pay follows the announcement by first direct of the roll-out of TouchID, and VoiceID  which makes it even quicker and easier for customers to access their bank account.
