Google Pay & Lydia: General Information
Using Lydia, Google Pay lets you pay contactless in any store using your Android mobile phone.
How it works 🤔
Google Pay uses Android devices' integrated NFC (Near Field Communication) chips to perform contactless payments in every store equipped with traditional card terminals. To pay contactless, you only need to:
- Unlock your device using biometric authentication or a PIN-code
- Approach it from the payment terminal (the NFC chip automatically detects it and performs the payment)
- That's it, your purchase is paid for !
Google Pay payments are far more secured than contactless credit card payments. Hence, there is no amount limit with contactless mobile payment.
Secure Payments 🔐
Card numbers are masked by Google Pay: they are never stored on the device nor transmitted to any retailers during the payment process. No thief can steal it and use it to debit your account.
