Oberthur Technologies to support Android Pay in Australia
Oberthur Technologies today announced its support to the international go-to-market of Android Pay with a first launch in Australia scheduled for 2016, according to a press release.
With its Digital Enablement Platform, Oberthur will support financial institutions in offering their customers this new service by enrolling their payment cards into Android Pay.
Oberthur said its Digital Enablement Platform is a comprehensive product that supports enrollment, mobile provisioning and token lifecycle management in digital wallets, irrespective of the underlying technologies and related security, either hardware- or software-based secure elements.
Together, Oberthur and Android Pay will offer financial institutions a one-stop-shop platform to enable and operate the service.
"Mobile payments is a big priority for Google and we're working to support a wide range of issuers to make Android Pay available to everyone," said Pali Bhat, senior director of product management for Google. "Oberthur's integration takes us one step further in this direction."
