Now with Google Pay you can now pay anywhere that accepts contactless payments using your Android phone.

Contactless payments in store using your smartphone

Google Pay  works using the NFC (Near Field Communication) technology which is integrated on Android.  This means that you will be able to pay contactless in every retailer that has a compatible card terminal.

Once you are ready to pay you simply need to unlock your smartphone and bring your smartphone close to the pay terminal.  Just like paying contactless with your bank card! You will hear a beep straight after to confirm the payment.

Thanks to the smartphone’s NFC chip it will automatically detect the terminal and activate the application Google Pay.  No need to do anything else. It really is that simple!

Unlike contactless card payment there is no €30 limit.  Google Pay has no limit as these payments are much more secure.

Secured Payment

For every purchase Google Pay uses a number for each device as well a unique number for each transaction.  The card’s number is never stored on the device or transmitted to any retailers at the moment you pay.
