In-App Payments comes to Android Pay

By  |  0 Comments

For those who haven’t gotten on board with Android pay yet, Google has given you a little more incentive with the addition of in-app payments.

Android Pay, along with Apple Pay and Samsung Pay, is a flagbearer for the mobile payment movement. With Android Pay, you can shop at thousands of stores that accept contactless payments; and now, across a sea of apps in Singapore with the new in-app feature. Android Pay is also available for all Comfort and CityCab taxis in Singapore.

What you need to do is to download the Android Pay app (you need to have an NFC-equipped phone and the operating system to be on at least Kit Kat 4.4) and complete a one-time setup by adding your credit or debit card, so there’s no need to enter your payment or address details every time you shop on mobile. It will appear in apps like Deliveroo, Grab, and honestbee in the form of an Android Pay purchase button.

Google is also working closely with leading loyalty programmes like NTUC Link’s Plus! Rewards Programme — soon you’ll be able to pay and earn reward points at the same time with a single tap. But in the meantime, you can enjoy the following special offers today:
