EE, the UK's most advanced digital communications company, today announced its Cash on Tap service, launched in partnership with Mastercard, is now available to even more 4GEE customers, with the addition of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, Galaxy Note 2 and 3, and the Sony Xperia Z1 to the range of supported devices.

Cash on Tap is designed to make paying for everyday items as easy as possible, and is a quick, secure and convenient way to make contactless payments via 4GEE smartphones. The service is accessible via a dedicated application, and allows customers to pay for items under £20 in over 230,000 outlets nationwide - including McDonald's, Caffè Nero, Pret A Manger and Greggs.

Available free from the Google Play store, the EE Cash on Tap app features an easy top-up function, as well as a balance checker and an itemised list of transactions. New customers can also get £10 credit when they sign up, receiving £5 when they first activate the Cash on Tap app, and another £5 when they add any money from any UK credit or debit card for the first time*.

New and existing 4GEE customers with the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, Galaxy Note 2, Galaxy Note 3, or Sony Xperia Z1, bought directly from EE retail shops, ee.co.uk and EE telesales, will now be able to use the service. These handsets join the 4GEE Samsung Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S3 LTE, as well as the Sony Xperia SP, which are already Cash on Tap enabled.

Simeon Bird, Director of Propositions at EE, said: "Cash on Tap is one of the most convenient ways to pay for everyday items, removing the need to reach for your wallet or search out loose change. We're pleased to be announcing the next compatible handsets, allowing even more EE customers to benefit from the simplicity and control the service offers them".

Marion King, President UK and Ireland at Mastercard said: "Using your mobile phone to make payments, helps make life quicker and easier for consumers on the high street. And with EE's latest range of Cash on Tap enabled handsets, even more UK customers than ever before can experience the benefits the service provides."

Further compatible Cash on Tap handsets are due to be announced in the coming months.
