Printicular has announced that Australian customers are now able to use Android Pay when using the free app to print photos. With Android Pay, people can order and pay for prints straight from their phone’s picture albums or social media accounts, and have pictures delivered to their homes.
The world’s fastest-growing photo printing app, Printicular is amongst a shortlist of apps worldwide to offer the easy-to-use payment system to its Android users, joining the ranks of heavyweights including Kogan, Ozsale and AirBnB.
Google’s Android Pay is the simple and secure way to use your Android phone to pay in stores and within apps.
Pali Bhat, Senior Director, Product Management, Google commented: “We're excited to bring the simplicity and security of mobile payments to Android users in Australia. Using Android Pay is more secure — and much faster — than rummaging through your wallet for a plastic card. Aussie shoppers can now use Android Pay at almost 800,000 contactless payment terminals across Australia."
Android Pay, now integrated into Printicular has only recently launched in Australia. Printicular co-founder Bruce Seymour says, “The addition of Android Pay to the app will mean Printicular customers have an added level of convenience and security to their photo purchases.”
Seymour says that while the majority of Printicular customers use the app to print and display their favourite every day memories, there is a growing number of users who are utilising the service as a way to more permanently archive their vast digital photo collections. “There was a chasm for about a decade where people weren’t able to easily print their photos.” adds Seymour. Cables, wires, logins made the process cumbersome and overwhelming. Printicular was built to make photo printing easier than it has ever been before.”
Millions of photos have been printed using MEA’s Printicular app. Printicular allows users to select, pay and print photos direct from their mobile device. The app is part of the company’s family of photo printing apps, which lets users print onto canvas, posters and greeting cards alongside traditional photo paper.
