British lender TSB Bank has added Android Pay support for its debit and credit cardholders to provide a simple and secure way to make payments via their Android devices.
The lender said that it processes nearly 200,000 contactless purchases a day, frequently used at supermarkets, coffee shops and food outlets.
When a consumer will add a card to Android Pay, the actual card numbers will not be stored or passed to merchants; instead the retailer will receive a newly-generated 16-digit virtual account number.
TSB products director Jatin Patel said: "Now that Android Pay is available to TSB customers, it means that they can benefit from this secure and convenient way to make purchases should they so choose.
"We believe customers should be able to bank how, when and where they want – what we call 'Local Banking on Demand' – and the launch of Android Pay at TSB further supports this.
"Our customers have enjoyed the added plusness they receive through our 5% cash-back offer on contactless purchases and now they can enjoy this through Android Pay, as well as Apple Pay."
