Chase Cardholders Can Now Use Android Pay

Starting today, Chase Visa debit and credit cardholders can use Android Pay in stores and in mobile apps.

To add a Chase Visa to Android Pay, customers must:

  1. Open the Android Pay app.
  2. Take a picture of their eligible Chase Visa debit or credit card.
  3. Select this card as their default account and follow the steps to verify their information.

To make purchases, users simply unlock their phone and hold it near the payment terminal at merchants that accept contactless payments. If making an in-app purchase, users just select Android Pay as their payment method.

NFC payments, such as Android Pay, are the safest way to complete transactions, according to a recent Square report. Part of what makes these transactions more secure is the fact that Android Pay masks account numbers by using a token instead of a card number to pay for goods. As soon as a transaction is complete, confirmation is sent to the customer, which will help them manage and track purchases.

Chase customers will still earn rewards and enjoy the usual benefits and services with their card when they use Android Pay.
