Braintree is enabling Apple Pay and Android Pay for its merchants in Australia through Braintree Direct.

The company said merchants will now be able to add both Android Pay and Apple Pay to their checkout process with just a few new lines of code.

According to Carolyn Breeze, Head of Australia at Braintree, the company’s support for both mobile wallets in Australia will allow merchants to offer richer commerce experiences by giving their customers greater flexibility and choice at checkout.

“We know Australians are spending more time on their mobile devices than ever before. With the majority of Australian consumers now shopping on mobile, it is becoming increasingly important for merchants to offer the most relevant and secure forms of payment.”

“We  always focus on partnering with merchants to deliver the most robust commerce experiences for their customers, and to support international expansion for those merchants who wish to grow their reach. We have been an early partner to Android Pay and Apple Pay as their reach has expanded around the world, and we are excited to continue this growth alongside them.”

Guzman y Gomez (GYG) is one of the first Braintree merchants in Australia to integrate Apple Pay.

The restaurant chain has more than 80 outlets (and counting) in Australia, it is one of the the nation’s fastest growing fast food company. The integration will allow customers of the popular food chain to use Apple Pay when ordering their favorite Mexican dish in its app.

Steven Marks, Co-Founder and Managing Director at Guzman y Gomez said partnering with a trusted payments provider like Braintree to integrate Apple Pay is the next step for the company in delivering a market leading app and user experience.

The announcement builds on Braintree’s existing support of American Express cards in Apple Pay and Android Pay, extending support to Visa and Mastercard in Australia.
