Android Pay and what it means for you
Paying for goods in store became almost effortless following the introduction of contactless cards, but you could find it’s about to get even easier still.
Android Pay, already in use in the United States, is in the pipeline for launch in Australia, and set to streamline the payment process by using your mobile phone to simply ‘tap and go.’
We’re pretty excited for Android Pay (and hope you are too!) and thought it’d be handy to give you an idea of what’s in store…
How does it work?
By adding your Orange Everyday card to your Android Pay app, you’ll be able to use your phone as a contactless payment platform for in-store and online purchases.
- Physical purchases: Simply unlock your phone and hold it over the payment terminal, just as you do with a contactless card. You will be able to use Android Pay wherever contactless payments are accepted.
- Digital purchases: Once you’ve added your Orange Everyday to the Android Pay App, you will be able to make online payments quickly and easily.
- A lighter wallet: Paying with your phone not only negates the need to carry around a debit card, but you can also configure Android Pay to store gift cards, store cards and loyalty cards for you too.
- A secure way to pay: Android Pay offers a high level of security so you can be confident your personal and financial details are safe. Your phone only allows contactless payments if it is unlocked so if it is ever stolen or lost, you can log onto your account from another device and lock it remotely.
Once you’ve made a payment, Android Pay will send you confirmation of the transaction so you can keep track of your spending as well as have peace of mind over all your mobile payments.
