Braintree Brings Apple Pay & Android Pay to Australian Retailers

Braintree (a PayPal service) has announced that it is enabling Apple Pay™ and Android Pay™ for its merchants in Australia through Braintree Direct.

With just a few lines of code, Australian retailers will now be able to add both Android Pay and Apple Pay to their checkout process quickly and easily through Braintree Direct.

Braintree’s support for both mobile wallets in Australia will allow merchants to offer richer commerce experiences by giving their customers greater flexibility and choice at checkout, according to Carolyn Breeze, head of Braintree Australia.

“We know Australians are spending more time on their mobile devices than ever before. With the majority of Australian consumers now shopping on mobile, it is becoming increasingly important for merchants to offer the most relevant and secure forms of payment.”

“At Braintree, we have always been focused on partnering with merchants to deliver the most robust commerce experiences for their customers, and to support international expansion for those merchants who wish to grow their reach. We have been an early partner to Android Pay and Apple Pay as their reach has expanded around the world, and we are excited to continue this growth alongside them.”

Today’s announcement builds on Braintree’s existing support of American Express cards in Apple Pay and Android Pay, extending support to Visa and Mastercard in Australia.
