Android Pay

Android Pay Rolling out in the U.S.

Last updated:

Google has announced that they have begun the roll out Android Pay in the U.S. Android Pay is a simple and secure way to pay with your Android phone at over one million locations across the US.

Android Pay also stores your gift cards, loyalty cards and special offers right on your phone.

Android Pay works with all NFC-enabled Android devices (running KitKat 4.4+), on any mobile carrier, at every tap and pay ready location across the US.

Android Pay will support credit and debit cards from the four major payment networks: American Express, Discover, MasterCard and Visa.

These cards are issued by many of the most popular US banks and credit unions, including American Express, Bank of America, Discover, Navy Federal Credit Union, PNC, Regions Bank, USAA, and U.S. Bank.

Citi and Wells Fargo will be available in the next few days, Capital One is coming soon.

Android PayTo keep things secure, Google will not be sending your actual credit or debit card number with the payment, but instead it will use a virtual account number. As soon as you make a purchase, you will receive a confirmation that shows where the transaction took place, keeping you informed at all times.

Later this year, Android Pay will be enabled through mobile checkout, allowing you to use the payment service within your favorite apps. Additionally, the service will soon support loyalty cards and special offers with just a tap.

Existing Google Wallet users can access Android Pay through an update to the Wallet app. For new users, Android Pay will be available on the Play Store in the next few days, and will come pre-installed on NFC-enabled phones from AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon.
