With Android Pay now being out in Australia for a little over a month, some of us here have simply changed banks rather than waiting for our institutions to jump on board. However, as Chris discussed whilst the process may be simple, it’s not always so easy.
So, what if you’re sticking with your bank but you want Android Pay goodness? Well if you bank with any of the remaining ‘Big Four’ not already in then you may just be out of luck. However, if you’re with any of the following banks I’d be hitting up customer support now, or just trying to add my cards.
- Big Sky Building Society Limited
- Catalyst Money
- Defence Bank Limited
- Illawarra Credit Union
- Northern Beaches Credit Union
- Police Bank Limited
Several of these banks appeared on the original list of banks that would be supported with Android Pay that we showed in June. Others from that list are still not yet available, but may very well be soon.
Sorry if your bank wasn’t on the list. Having used Android Pay for a month myself I can confirm that it is much easier then using any Banks mobile payment app I’ve tried and almost frictionless, especially if you only have 1 credit card.
If your bank is not on board should let them know how you feel, social channels are always good, Twitter or Facebook draw large audiences. Tag us in your post, we just may share it. And if they don’t listen to you vote with your feet and your wallet.
