Analysts predict that by 2018, two out of three new phones will be equipped with NFC. The majority of those will be Android devices, as – presently – 85% of phones shipped run the Android operating system. Google’s mobile payment software, Android Pay, already works in more than 700,000 store locations and will be integrated into 1,000 apps. It’s supported by Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and major banks. There’s no denying it – Android Pay will be soon be ubiquitous wherever consumers use smart devices and NFC to pay for goods and services. Highly secure, the Android OS uses Host Pay emulation, in which sensitive data is encrypted, tokenized and stored in the Cloud. Offering Android Pay is a strong value-add for your solution, allowing merchants to accept in-store, in-app and online purchases.
