What is Android Pay?
Android Pay is a mobile payment system that allows certain models of phones operating with Android OS 4.4 (KitKat) or newer to make payments via their smartphones. Android Pay makes secure, tokenized transactions via Near Field Communication (NFC).
Is Android Pay safe?
Android Pay incorporates a variety of security precautions including a tokenized card number. This means your smartphone will not send your actual card information but rather a virtual account number that “stands in” for your actual card number during purchases. Major retailers, phone providers and card brands support the safety and security of this product.
Which devices are compatible with Android Pay?
Any Android operating system using version 4.4 (KitKat) or newer can be used.
Do Dupaco cards work with Android Pay?
Beginning February 8, 2016, Dupaco's VISA card will be compatible with Android Pay. Dupaco’s debit MasterCard is forecast to be compatible with Android Pay in early summer of 2017.
How do I load a card into my Android operating smartphone?
The first step is to install the Android Pay app from the phone’s app store (if it did not come pre-installed on the phone). Compatible credit and/or debit cards can be easily loaded into the phone using the Android Pay app. You can take a picture of your card or manually enter the card information. Upon completion of the entry of card information you will either 1) receive immediate approval to use your device, or 2) you may be prompted to call an 800 number shown on the device for an added layer of security. Multiple payment cards can be loaded into the device. Ensure that your Dupaco Visa credit card is the first choice.
Where can I use Android Pay?
Dupaco members can use their Android Pay device at payment terminals accepting Near Field Communication (NFC). These devices allow physical card tap and go payments, and Android Pay and Apple Pay. These terminals display a contactless payment symbol.
Where won't I be able to use Android Pay?
Android Pay does not work at ATMs or in any payment device where a card must be “inserted” into the device. Nor does Android Pay work at terminals that do not accept contactless payments. Android Pay should be compatible at payment terminals that presently process Apple Pay transactions. Look for the contactless payment symbol.
What if I lose my phone?
If you lose your phone, you can use Android Device Manager to instantly lock your device from anywhere, secure it with a new password, and even wipe the device clean of your personal information. You can also call Dupaco who can stop the tokenization of your Visa card on the device.
What if I have questions?
Questions about loading a card into Android Pay may be directed to Dupaco’s card services department. Dupaco can also address questions pertaining to lost/stolen cards or devices. Technical questions about the phone should be directed toward an Android smartphone dealer. Android also has a helpful website at which you may find answers to questions: www.android.com/pay/.
