European financial group Nordea announced on Tuesday it has expanded its digital payment offering by adding Google Pay. According to Nordea, customers in all Nordic countries can now use Google Pay at contactless payment terminals and in apps and online stores. All Nordea’s consumer cards and Nordea First Card can be added to Google Pay.
Nordea reported that the launch of Google Pay follows the launches of several digital payment solutions in recent time. The company noted customers that use Android devices will now be making mobile payments that are fast, easy and secure. Topi Manner, Head of Personal Banking at Nordea, stated:
“We want to make everyday life easier for our customers. Mobile payment is a very convenient way to make everyday purchases without carrying your wallet with you, at all times. Mobile payment is easy, accessible and secure – and that’s what our customers want.”
Nordea went on to also reveal that Google Pay brings other benefits for corporations since corporate cards can be added. It was noted:
“Regardless if employees use plastic cards or Google Pay, all purchases end up on the same invoice. It therefore creates less administration and makes life easier for employees when travelling or making expenses on behalf of the company.”
Erik Zingmark, Head of Transaction Banking at Nordea, then added:
As the frontrunner of the digital transformation of banking, it’s important to offer a complete range of digital payment solutions to all customers. No other Nordic bank can match our broad range of digital payment solutions on all Nordic markets.”
