What is Android Pay?

Launching in Australia in the second half of 2016, Android Pay is an easy and secure way to pay with your phone anywhere you can currently tap and pay with a card. Android Pay also facilitates in-app purchases at selected merchants, making the checkout process much quicker.

Android Pay offers you a smart way to make fast purchases with any credit or debit card. All you need is an Android smartphone which has an NFC chip running Android version 4.40 (KitKat) or higher. You can consult the specifications documentation of your smartphone to determine your ANdroid version and if your phone has an NFC chip.

How it works

The process is simple, secure and seamless as long as Family First has your correct email address and mobile phone number in our systems (you can provide this to us now with the form below):

Android Pay offers you choice, simplicity and security for any type of purchase.

The first card you add to Android Pay becomes your default card every time you use Android Pay to make a purchase.



Combining the latest technology with trusted functionality, this mobile wallet allows you to choose your device and preferred card, so wherever you are, at a store or in an app – you're ready to use Android Pay.


With Android Pay, you are only a tap away from checkout. In-store, all you need to do is wake your phone by tapping the home or power button, place it near a contactless terminal, and you're good to go. Just like a contactless transaction with a payWave or PayPass card, Android Pay will not work for purchases over $100 unless you enter your PIN at the terminal. Within apps, simply select ‘Buy with Android Pay’ and you're all done – no need to manually enter payment information – one tap is all you need to pay.


Android Pay has extra layers of security to keep card information safe and secure. You can keep track of your purchases – making it easy to catch any suspicious activity. You can instantly lock your device from anywhere if lost or stolen and Android Pay never sends your actual card details when you make a payment – so your card details are always protected.
