We saw this article this morning and thought it might be useful to read
"Google has said that it will extend Android Pay to the UK "in the next few months".
The facility allows any device running Android 4.4 or higher and fitted with an NFC (near field communication) chip to act as a tap-and-pay substitute for credit and debit cards.
Several lenders, including Lloyds Bank, HSBC and Nationwide have said they will support the scheme."
Have you used other similar payment options before like Apple Pay? Would you use this for your Android?
contactless payment is extremely convenient by itself.
I agree @Anonymous. I didn't think I'd use it when it was first released, but its so much easier
I think Android Pay, Samsung Pay, and Apple Pay will eventually take hold here, but as contactless card payments have been around for some time now, they will still be used more, at least for now. Paying using your phone will probably come more to the fore, but at the moment I think it's more geared towards the US market. I always find it incredible that card payment in the US is so outdated and antiquated. They have only introduced chips on cards this year, and it's still chip and signature, not chip and PIN, and they have no plan to introduce PIN's on cards. On top of all that, many vendor's machines aren't working yet because the authentication system is lagging, and millions are being lost in fraudulent transactions.
