Global payments service provider SumUp has collaborated with Google Pay to allow merchants to make safer and quicker business transactions using SumUp Card.
Existing card-holders in the UK, France, Italy, Germany, Austria and Switzerland will now be able to add the SumUp Card to their phone wallet, and start using it for business payments in stores, online, and with other Google products.
Other merchants can also create virtual cards via Google Pay to start using all the benefits of the SumUp Card until the physical card arrives.
Google Pay is the fast, simple way to pay with Google, bringing together everything a merchant would need at checkout and keeping their payment info safe in their Google Accounts until they’re ready to pay.
Google Pay also makes it even easier for merchants to pay and check out. SumUp Card holders won’t need to remember all card details or fill out endless forms on their smartphones. Instead, merchants will be able to pay on the move with a few clicks and spend less time checking out.
The SumUp Card is a free Mastercard that gives merchants next-day access to the payments they receive through SumUp, even on weekends. Merchants can use the card online, in-store or at the ATM—wherever Mastercard is accepted. The card grants faster access to money and can be used for all business expenses, while providing merchants with a clearer overview of their cash flow.
Dimitri Gugunava, vice president of banking at SumUp, comments: “At SumUp, we’re always looking to help our merchants find new ways to improve their businesses, particularly as we move out of this pandemic and hopefully towards a more economically positive future.”
“Collaborating with Google Pay is a really important development for us, because it means we can remove layers of friction for small businesses who need to make quick (but safe) payments on the go.”
