Android Pay goes live in Belgium
Android Pay is now live in Belgium, making it the tenth country to adopt Google's mobile contactless payment system. Starting today, Belgians can use their NFC-enabled Android phones to make in-store payments at over 85,000 retail locations throughout the country, including places like H&M, Media Markt, McDonalds, Carrefour, and others.
Currently, Android Pay accepts only MasterCard and Visa cards from BNP Paribas, Fintro, and Hello Bank!, but the roster of supported banks will soon expand to include CBC/KBC, Google promises.
Also, be on the look-out for dedicated Android Pay buttons in apps like Deliveroo, TransferWise, Vueling, Fancy, and others.
Android Pay is available on all Android devices running KitKat 4.4 and up for online purchases, as well as on NFC-enabled devices for in-store payments.
