Accept Android Pay in stores

When customers buy in stores with Android Pay, they tell the cashier which e-money they want to use and place their mobile device near your contactless near field communication (NFC) point-of-sale terminal.

Customers must "wake" their device in order to tap and pay. For some large purchases, they will be required to unlock their device as well. Android Pay processes their transaction using credit and debit cards they’ve previously added to Android Pay. Android Pay does all the heavy lifting and users don’t even need to open the app — they simply tap and pay.

Accept Android Pay in your Android mobile app

When you integrate Android Pay into your mobile app, customers who’ve added credit and debit cards to their Android Pay app can simply tap Buy with Android Pay button to use Android Pay as their method of payment to pay within your app. Customers won’t need to enter their credit card or shipping address on each purchase.
