SumUp and Google Pay to boost business transactions for merchants
By Megha Bhattacharya
SumUp announced that it has collaborated with Google Pay to allow merchants to make safer and quicker business transactions using SumUp Card. Existing SumUp Card-holders in the UK, France, Italy, and DACH, will now be able to add the Card to their phone wallet and start using it for business payments in stores, online, and with other Google products.
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.
Dimitri Gugunava, VP Banking at SumUp commented, “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.”
Recently, SumUp and Mastercard teamed up to announce a new payment service customised for Ford commercial vehicles in Germany, Italy, France, Spain and the United Kingdom. The new solution will allow small business owners with commercial vehicles to accept card payments directly from their vehicles. The companies stated that the solution provides entrepreneurs with the ability to accept payments from their customers immediately, rather than waiting for an invoice to be paid at a later date.
