Positive about keeping its expansion going, Google has declared a few essential updates to the Android Pay experience this week. Including more banks, with Chase now on board in the U.S. for its most well-known cards (Freedom, Slate, Sapphire, and so on.), and both Santander and TSB are joining in the UK. Many banks are currently supported, from the giants down to little credit unions.
Not ceasing there, Android Pay has additionally extended its loyalty card acceptance with particular retailers to give you a chance to win rewards without scanning a different card, all you have to do is simply pay with Android Pay and you’ll make a safe payment and get loyalty rewards.
Walgreens as of late moved this out for its Balance Rewards program, however now Dunkin’ Donuts and Chili’s are ready and would be revealing this feature in “the coming months.” Uber has as of now launched its Payment Rewards program in Android Pay, and to celebrate is putting forth 50% off 10 Uber rides only to use Android Pay in the application — no codes or coupons are needed.
Also, now after months in limbo, Android Pay is beginning its rollout on the mobile web. “Much the same as we’ve done for quite a long time with Google Wallet and third-party solutions like PayPal and Amazon Payments, you’ll soon have the capacity to utilise your stored Android Pay cards to make deals from sites on your smartphone.”
Retail giants like Groupon and 1-800-Flowers are launch partners, however simply taking a look at a number of sites (a considerable number of sites) that used Google Wallet before, this ought to give you a thought of what number to expect soon.
Android Pay has won the backing and trust of the general populace who are now utilising its full potential, yet the issue at this moment is keeping the service continuously appealing as we trod on to the future.
We naturally complained when the payment service launched with fewer features than Google Wallet and heaps of unfulfilled promises which gave people a bad perception of the app because some individuals basically attempted to try it and promptly disregarded it.
With big launches of new banks, more app integrations, loyalty program features and the rollout of mobile web purchasing, there’s enough here to get people to not only try Android Pay for the first time but far more crucially try it for the second and third times.
