Following on from ANZ’s Apple Pay launch in April, it seems that an Android Pay launch in Australia is now imminent, with ANZ issued American Express cards quietly being accepted when attempting to add a card in Android Pay. Just fire up the Android Pay app, tap add a card, and then either enter in the card verification code for the card already added to your Google Account, scan/take a photo of the card, or manually enter your card details.
While ‘Android Pay’ is not currently available in the Google Play store for Australians, some phones sold in Australia with Marshmallow, and phones flashed with other firmware may already have the Android Pay app installed. And of course, you’re always free to sideload the APK if you’re impatient! (my HTC One M8 is flashed with stock GPE firmware, for those curious among you)
