Credit cards with Android Pay

Compare credit cards with Android Pay and discover the convenience of paying with secure and contactless mobile payments at the checkout.

Google launched its Android Pay service in Australia in July 2016, following the earlier launches of Apple Pay and Samsung Pay. These contactless payment services allow you to use your phone (or other compatible device) to make tap-and-go purchases at the checkout. Android Pay can be used with selected Visa, Mastercard and American Express credit cards from participating financial institutions, including ANZ, American Express, Bendigo Bank and Macquarie Bank. As Android Pay continues to grow and add partners, you can check back here for updates, or refer to your bank's website for specific information on eligible cards.

How does Android Pay work?

Android Pay uses the NFC (Near Field Communication) chips found in many Android smartphones to allow cardholders to make payments directly from their phone. Instead of getting out your wallet and credit card, you simply unlock your phone and tap it on contactless terminals. If your card is connected to a loyalty program, any eligible purchases you make with Android Pay will automatically earn points for your rewards account. You can also use Android Pay to make payments online. Android Pay currently works with contactless Mastercard, Visa and American Express credit and debit cards. However, Google is also looking to integrate it with EFTPOS, which could broaden the types of accounts you could use with Android Pay. Android-pay-coming-to-Australia-2016

Is Android Pay safe to use?

Android Pay uses the same technology as contactless credit cards and is just as secure at the checkout. In fact, Android Pay could be considered more secure as it doesn’t send your credit or debit card number with your payment. Instead, it uses an encrypted virtual account number to represent your account details. This means that your card details aren’t stored on your phone or on the Android Pay app. If you do suspect any suspicious activity on your account, you can also use the Android Pay app to track your transaction history. With the merchant’s name and number, you can monitor and flag suspicious activity. If your card is lost or stolen, you can also use Android Device Manager to instantly lock your phone from anywhere, secure it with a new password or wipe it clean of your personal information. These features prevent anyone from using your phone for contactless payments.
