Android Pay teams up with Masterpass and Visa Checkout to make online shopping easier

Android Pay is gaining a couple of partners to help make buying things online a bit easier.

Google officially announced today that it is partnering with Visa and MasterCard to enable Android Pay when checking out at websites that support Visa Checkout and MasterCard’s Masterpass. It’s as simple as linking an account to Android Pay and then checking out like normal.

Once everything is linked up and good to go, you’ll be able to authenticate a purchase made through Visa Checkout or Masterpass with your fingerprint, or whichever way you prefer to authenticate Android Pay purchases.

Google says the integration will begin to rollout sometime in the beginning of 2017, but no specific date has been confirmed just yet.

Is this a partnership that intrigues you?
