Android Pay is a secure digital wallet application designed for processing payments using tablets and smartphone devices.
Designed for Android devices, this application allows users to add their cards to an NFC-enabled Android device and use their mobile devices instead of credit cards to make payments in retail stores.
Over one million retail stores across United States have Android Pay enabled device readers.
Android Pay also serves as an alternative to Google Wallet. Users can make purchases through its Android app and make payments for other Android services, such as movies and music.
Rather than using bank account or card details, Android Pay uses virtual account numbers, thus adding another security layer to making payments.
Users who have a fingerprint-reader feature in their smartphones can authenticate their payments using their fingerprints.
