Android Pay

Pay confidently on the go with Android Pay!

You can use Android PayTM to make quick and easy purchases with your phone at contactless terminals in stores throughout the United States, as well as in supported apps.

Android Pay comes preloaded on several devices. If your phone doesn’t have the app, simply download it from Google Play. Here’s what you need:

  • Android phone running Kit Kat (4.4) or higher
  • Android phone that supports NFC (Near Field Communication) and HCE (Host Card Emulation)
  • Screen lock activated on your device
  • Android Device Manager turned on (recommended)

Note: You can’t use Android Pay if you’ve enrolled in Samsung My KNOX on your device. My KNOX lets users manage multiple profiles on the same device, such as work and personal profiles. To use Android Pay, disable Samsung My KNOX profiles.

How does Android Pay work?

When adding a card to Android Pay, instead of using your actual card number, a virtual account number represents your account information, so your card details stay safe. As soon as you make a purchase, you’ll see a payment confirmation that shows you exactly where a given transaction happened, along with the merchant’s name and number.

How will Android Pay keep my information secure?

Android Pay keeps all your payment information encrypted on secure servers. Your full details are never stored on your phone or shared with merchants when you buy something. If your phone is ever lost or stolen, you can use Android Device Manager to instantly lock your device from anywhere, secure it with a new password, and even wipe it clean of your personal information.

Which merchants currently accept Android Pay?

Android Pay is accepted at over one million stores across the United States and is now available in your favorite Android apps. Look for the Pay Wave® or Android Pay symbol at checkout.
