Republic Bank is now offering clients the ability to use Android Pay, in addition to Apple Pay and Samsung Pay, to conduct payment transactions with their Republic Bank consumer credit and debit cards. With Android Pay, clients can easily make purchases in a single touch using compatible Android devices. As with all Republic Bank products and services, security and privacy is at the forefront of Android Pay. When Republic Bank clients add their consumer credit or debit card to Android Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on the device. Instead, using tokenization, a unique and temporary credit card is created for each transaction use. In addition, Android also eliminates the need for retailers to see customer names, card numbers or card security codes. Users will continue to receive all of the rewards and benefits offered by their Republic Bank MasterCard credit and debit cards, including Zero Liability Protection. "We continually look for innovative approaches to make the lives of our clients easier," said Michael Sadofsky, Senior Vice President of Marketing. "We are excited to add Android Pay to our current mobile wallet solutions of Apple Pay and Samsung Pay as easy, secure payment solutions that allow our clients to bank when, where and how they want." Android Pay will work on any Android device running version 4.4 (KitKat) or later and an NFC chip inside.
