Android Pay Can Be Used for App-Based Purchasing
Google today added to Android Pay's capabilities, making it possible to use Android Pay when making purchases within select Android apps. Google believes this will benefit consumers and app developers alike. Consumers will be able to pay by tapping the Android Pay logo — no more digging out the wallet to enter credit card information. Developers can ease the checkout process, thereby eliminating a barrier that might otherwise cause shoppers to abandon purchases. Some of the initial apps to support Android Pay include Doordash, Fancy, Handy, HotelTonight, Houzz, Instacart, Lyft, OpenTable, SpotHero, and Wish. Google says developers can use the Android Pay API to add support for Android Pay to their apps. Google plans to launch Android Pay in Australia and other countries in 2016.
