Android Pay These days there are so many ways to pay for you items when you are in a store. There, of course, is cash, credit and debit card, contactless pay and then there is Android Pay, have you ever used it? I’ve had Android Pay on my mobile/cell for some time now but until today never used it, always forgetting all about it. Well, today, I was in the local store and I had forgotten to put up my wallet but had my phone on me. I was just about to say the sales assistant, I need to go back home to get my wallet when I remember about Android Pay on my phone. I woke up my phone, place it next to the terminal and it start to do something, next payment made, awesome. I didn’t need to go back home to pick up my wallet. Do you have Android Pay, have you ever used Android Pay?

I don't have it. I don't trust connecting my phone to my cards. For iOS we have Apply pay essentially the same thing.

I don't know that a lot of places here accept android pay, or apple pay or any of the other electronic / wireless payment processors. I haven't used it but that's because I don't feel comfortale putting such information on my phone.

Apple pay is big over here, most places take it, Android is slowly being taken. Contactless is almost everywhere with a limit of £30.

@kevin1877uk I have never even heard of contactless. Is it international do you know? I know this will be the way of the future though. I give it maybe ten or twenty more years before physical currency is long forgotten.

@ScribbledAdNauseum Contactless as been in the UK for the past 18 months/ 2 years, you just place your card next to the terminal and to take payment. I was commenting with Anna early and I know they have it in Switzerland

Here there are many kinds of payment methods by smartphone. Besides Android Pay and Apple Pay, here we can also pay by Alipay, Wechat Pay and so on. Sometimes it is OK that I don't bring the wallet and credit card and I can still go to the restaurants, markets, stores etc. I seldom use my smartphone to pay because it will spend my connection. Besides, I don't use 4G and the connection is not fast. But I tried to pay my son's study fee by Wechat pay since they offered me a bonus

@kevin1877uk In this aspect we develop so fast. Even if you can use an app to place an order for the delivery food. You can stay at home for a whole day and you don't have to stay hungry.

@Lupita234 Perhaps the smartphones have developed very fast here. Even if the elders use the smartphone today

I think that nobody here accepts Android Pay, for the moment we use our credit or debit cards.

Maybe given time it will be accepted there, it's slowly being used in more places here in the UK

@kevin1877uk For what concerns money, Switzerland is a pretty old fashioned country.

@Lupita234 NO, you are wrong, it is widely used in the UK (that is not even more part of United Europe), in some European countries it is not even yet available. On which base you said what you wrote?

It's an alternative to using your debit/credit card, you use you mobile/cell phone although there is a limit to how much you can spend at any one time for security reasons I guess.

@ilocosboy There are the odd PayPal ones here but I'm sure it will become more so in the months and years to come.

I still mainly use my debit card to shop. But I have ApplePay and have yet to use that. I am no fan of Android. But I will start using ApplePay. More secure actually. But, both these pay systems are not accepted everywhere. So I still have to use my debit card. I am sure time will make it easier to use ApplePay everywhere.

I guess everyone is different as I don't like iPhone lol. Applepay is everywhere in the UK and Android is slowly doing the same.

@kevin1877uk Well, they are competing companies. But I have always been an Apple fan from way back. And if there were no Apple, I would be using Android. That is way better than Windows.
