Butterfield launches Google Pay

Butterfield Bank announced today that it has collaborated to launch Google Pay — enabling clients to add personal debit, credit cards and business debit cards to a Google Wallet.

Google Pay is a mobile payment service developed by Google to power in-app, online and in-person contactless purchases on mobile devices, including Android phones, tablets or watches.

Each purchase is authenticated with face identification, touch identification or a device passcode.

Jody Feldman, Butterfield’s managing director in Bermuda, said: “We are delighted to collaborate with Google Pay and provide our clients with a secure and convenient way to make purchases wherever they are by simply tapping or holding their phone in place of a physical card.

“Clients can also use Google Pay for online and in-app purchases. We continue to invest in our client experience and this innovative payment solution is the latest addition to our services.”

Butterfield said clients who make payments using Google Pay will continue to receive all the usual rewards and benefits offered by their Butterfield card.

A spokeswoman added: “Google Pay is easy to set up. On an Android phone or supported Wear OS device, clients can simply open the Google Wallet app and follow the short steps to add their Butterfield card information.

“Once a client adds a card, they will be able to start using Google Pay on that device right away.”

In May last year, Butterfield said it was the first to market in the Cayman Islands and that it was “in discussions for Bermuda”.
