OREANDA-NEWS  Yandex has launched its own system for paying for purchases - Yandex Pay. The service works with Mastercard, Visa and Mir cards of any banks. Cashback and other bonuses for cardholders remain. This information is reported by the Vedomosti newspaper. According to information from the source, users will be able to pay by card without entering its details - card data will be written off from the linked account on Yandex.

The head of the service, Alexander Golovin, notes that any company now has the opportunity to put a Yandex Pay button on its website in order to simplify the payment process for customers. The service has already been installed by the online store Lamoda and Brandshop.

Golovin also notes that at first the service will only work on websites, but in the future it will be possible to pay through Yandex Pay also in mobile applications and offline.

Earlier in March, it became known that the co-founder and head of Yandex, Arkady Volozh, decided to sell the company's shares for 1.9 million dollars.
