Android Pay- How it works

Android Pay

If you are still far behind in knowing what is Android Pay then note that you can now pay with your Android smartphone by adding your credit, debit, loyalty, and gift cards to Android Pay, and start shopping in stores, in apps, and online. Suppose you are at the grocery store and wish to pay for your fresh fruits and veggies just make sure your phone is unlocked and hold it to the terminal — you don’t even need to open the app and pay for the bill.

Android Pay can be used at millions of stores around the world, wherever contact-less payments are accepted. Just look for one of the below symbols at checkout:

You can also earn and redeem your loyalty points automatically when you use Android Pay. Available for Walgreens Balance Rewards and Coke MyRewards cards. Simply hold your phone to the terminal before you pay and never miss out on points again. Note that when you use your phone to pay in stores, Android Pay doesn’t send your actual credit or debit card number with your payment. Instead it uses a virtual account number to represent your account info – so your card details stay safe and secure.

Android Pay makes it easy to check out in apps and online. No need to enter your card details every time. Whether shopping in your favorite app or on Chrome, just choose Android Pay at checkout and save yourself some time.

If  your phone is ever lost or stolen, you can use Android Device Manager to instantly lock it from anywhere, secure it with a new password, or wipe it clean of personal data.

How to get started to use Android Pay

  • Simply download Android Pay app from Google Play store
  • Add a credit or debit card from any participating bank.
  • Now you are ready to pay in stores, in apps, and online.
  • Android Pay is available on all non-rooted Android devices (KitKat 4.4+)

Other than the above mentioned institutions, Android Pay is now also supported by the Boundary Waters Bank, Citizens Bank of the South, Country Bank for Savings, Countryside Bank, First Green Bank, Greenfield Cooperative Bank, First State Bank of the Florida Keys, Indiana University Credit Union, and the McFarland State Bank.

Thus all of the banks that now added support for Android Pay are based in the United States, the key market for Google’s mobile payments solution that has been gaining a lot of traction recently. A number of banks in the country like the Commerce Bank of Kansas City are yet to start supporting the platform despite offering support for Apple Pay since its launch, but there’s still no specific time frame regarding when such a thing might happen.

Also while certain developments in December last year suggested support for Android Pay in Canada is just around the corner, the mobile payments solution still hasn’t made its way to that country, and Google has yet to provide consumers with an official update on the situation.

So it seems that many more users of Android cell phones in the U.S. will be able to start using Android Pay this year, depending on their bank of choice.
