If you happen to live in the Ireland and own an Android phone, you will be glad to know that Google has just introduced Android pay in Ireland starting today.
Android Pay is a contactless payment system which helps you to pay simply and securely without sharing your actual credit/debit card number. Android Pay is available on all (non-rooted) Android devices that are NFC-enabled and running on KitKat 4.4 or higher.
So, next time you are doing your daily shopping or heading for a night out, your Android phone is all you need as you walk out the door.
You will be able to use Android Pay at thousands of retail locations throughout Ireland that accept contactless payments. This includes your favourite shops like Eason, McDonald’s, Tesco, SPAR, and much more — take a look here for more places where you can use Android Pay.
To get started, download Android Pay from the Play Store and add an eligible MasterCard or Visa card (credit or debit) from AIB and KBC with more banks being added in the coming months.
Because Android Pay doesn’t share your actual credit or debit card number with stores when you pay, it’s even safer than using a plastic card. If your phone is ever lost or stolen, you can simply use Android Device Manager to instantly lock your device from anywhere, secure it with a new password, or wipe it clean of your personal information.
Get started with Android Pay in Ireland today: download the app on Google Play, add your card and start shopping. It’s as easy as Tap. Pay. Done!
