Android pay finally takeoffs in Asia through Singapore

Android pay has been introduced in Singapore and android users can link their credit cards to their phones to pay at retail outlets throughout the island. With the start of android pay in island, Singapore has become the third country to receive Google mobile payment service right after United States and United Kingdom where this service started in September last year and in May respectively.     

Android pay system works only with those android devices that are capable of NFC and running android OS KitKat 4.4 or higher. Device that are released from mid of 2014 are eligible for this service.   

No doubt Google mobile payment service is close to the heels of its competitors Samsung Pay which started it services two weeks ago and Apple Pay which inaugurated its services here in April. Keep in mind the big support of Samsung and Apple pay to banks Google has made its service launching day “A BIG” day with the backing of large banks. Android Pay will support MasterCard and Visa cards from OCBC Bank, DBS/POSB, UOB and Standard Chartered. According to MasterCard sources 30,000 contactless terminals will cover in Singapore nationwide.   

Now the big question is how to start up:

Follow the footprints and enjoy the service

  • Install Android Pay app from Google play store.
  • If your device support fingerprint unlocking then set up advance security options.
  • Insert your card(s).
  • Go to retailer’s contactless terminals, swipe your phone lock and hold it over the reader. A checkmark will appear as the transaction is successful.
