Google has launched Android Pay in more than one million locations across the U.S. The search giant’s contribution to the mobile payment race, Android Pay allows users to store gift cards, loyalty cards and special offers on their mobile devices. When they’re ready to make a purchase, consumers can tap their phones on the payment terminal.
While announcing the launch, Android Pay executives announced that retailers such as Aeropostale, American Eagle, Babies “R” Us, GameStop, Jamba Juice, Panera Bread and Walgreens will accept the payment option. Android Pay also will partner with a select number of retailers to integrate the payment option into their mobile apps.
