With more mobile pay options like Apple Pay and Venmo becoming commonplace, electronics manufacturer LG is getting in on the action.
Last month, LG launched LG Pay on the Google Play store. The app provides contactless payment through near field communication, similar to other mobile payment options.
“LG Pay will be supported on the LG G8 ThinQTM smartphone at launch and available to download on LG V50 ThinQTM 5G, LG V40 ThinQTM, LG G7 ThinQTM and LG V35 ThinQTM in the coming months. LG Pay will be compatible with future LG flagship smartphones,” a release from LG explained.
LG Pay is accepted wherever Visa and MasterCard transactions are, and at a number of large financial institutions like Chase and PNC Bank. LG also worked with Swych to allow the platform to perform gift card merging, technology that allows users to upload gift cards onto the app.
“LG Pay demonstrates LG’s commitment to offering products and services that provide value and convenience to our customers,” said Chris Yie, head of LG Mobile, North America. “LG Pay’s unique features enable flexibility and ease-of-use in the growing mobile payments space.”
The app focuses on convenience with LG PayQuick, which allows for quick and secure transactions on the fly by a quick swipe up on the app.
