In the first half of 2016, we’ll be bringing Android Pay to Australia — the simple and secure way to pay using your Android phone. Android Pay also stores your gift cards, loyalty cards and special offers right on your phone.
With Android Pay, you simply unlock your phone, hold it to the terminal, and voila — your payment is done. We’re working closely with many of Australia’s major financial institutions — including ANZ, Westpac, Bank of Melbourne, Bank of South Australia, Bendigo Bank, Cuscal, ING DIRECT, Macquarie Bank, and St. George — with the aim of bringing Android Pay to their card holders in 2016, and will continue to work with more banks throughout the year.
When Android Pay arrives in Australia next year, it will support MasterCard and Visa credit and debit cards. We’re also working with eftpos to support their cards in Android Pay.
