How to add your Store Loyalty cards to Android Pay

Android Pay Australia

With Android Pay now finally here in Australia today, it’s time to go about setting up the Android Pay app. As well as acting as your virtual payment card the Android Pay can also hold many of your in-store reward cards. Here’s a quick how-to on adding those cards.

The process is simple:

  1. Click on the + button (the floating action button) in the bottom right corner
  2. Click Add a loyalty programme
  3. Search for the program you’re adding
  4. Scan the barcode

That’s it: you’re cards will now be visible below your credit cards. You have the options to turn notifications on or off for each type based on your proximity to those stores. Each card also has shortcuts to things like nearby locations, contact numbers and websites.

We’re still looking for a comprehensive list of cards you can add, let us know which store you add to Android Pay

  1. Do I need to add a credit card first to activate the loyalty program? Looks like I can’t see the option when clicking floating plus button.

  2. lol or just take a photo of the barcode. Was using a photo of my Everyday Rewards card for years

  3. This is brilliant. Just added my Woolies rewards card, so now I can scan that, and then tap and pay, all from my phone. No fumbling with multiple cards.

    Gift cards would be handy. I use them exclusively for groceries/petrol/bigW as I can get them cheaper than they are worth.

  5. Can you only add loyalty cards if you have set up a credit card?
