Android Pay Launches In Australia

By 04:09 Wed, 04 Aug 2021 Comments

After initially launching Android Pay in the US last May, Google finally rolled out the mobile payment service in Australia for the first time. Android Pay is officially accepted in the following stores with McDonald's “coming soon”. Strangely, I remember McDonald’s to be among the first adopters of NFC payments in the US.

This marks Android Pay as the last major mobile payment service to come to Australia. Apple Pay and Samsung Pay have already been operating in Australia before today. Now it looks like Apple Pay and Samsung Pay will have more competition. Becautilize most people who don’t own either a Samsung or Apple phone, most likely own an Android device, one of the requirements for the service.

The first bank to acquire Android Pay support is ANZ with other major banks “coming later this year”. Other institutions that support Android Pay include: Macquarie, American Express, MyState, Teacher’s Mutual Bank, and PCCU.

The site lists Bendigo Bank, EFTPOS, MasterCard, ING Direct, St. George, and Westpac all as “coming soon”. Additionally, the following apps will support seamless Android Pay transactions as well.

In-app Android Pay transactions coming soon to these apps

Happy buying!
