• Android Pay

  • Another way to pay with your Lloyds Bank debit card.

    Android Pay™ is another convenient way to pay with your Lloyds Bank Visa debit card. Using the latest contactless technology, it's a simple way to make everyday payments with your mobile device. It’s safe and secure because when you shop at a retailer, Android Pay doesn’t send your actual debit card number with your payment. Instead we use a virtual account number to represent your account information — so your card details stay safe. Plus, if you're currently getting rewards or benefits with your Lloyds Bank debit card, you'll still be eligible to receive these whenever you make a purchase using Android Pay.

    Android Pay can be used on Android devices with contactless capability (NFC), running on the Android 4.4 (KitKat®) or newer and the Android Pay app downloaded. Some card restrictions apply.*

    To protect you from fraud, we may restrict the value or number of payments you can make using Android Pay, so please make sure you carry your debit card with you just in case. Some retailers will also limit individual payments to £30.

    To use Android Pay you need to have the app installed, so check if you already have it on your device. If not, go to the Google Play Store and search Android Pay. If you can see it on the Google Play Store it means your device is compatible.

    You can add your Lloyds Bank debit card to Android Pay in just a few steps:

    • Tap the + sign in the app
    • Enter your card details and address details
    • Review and accept the Lloyds Bank terms of use
    • Verify your cards for security, then follow the on-screen instructions
    • You'll be prompted to set up a screen lock, if you don't already have one.

    For in store payments under £30, simply wake your device and hold it near the contactless reader (no need to open the app). Your device will beep or vibrate, and you'll receive a confirmation on screen to show your payment was made.

    For in app purchases, look for the “Buy with Android Pay” button at checkout. Tap it and follow the prompts to complete your payment.

    Payment will always be taken from the default card in your Android Pay wallet.

    apple contactless

    You can use it to pay within some apps as well, where you see 'Buy with Android Pay'.

    You can also use Android Pay in London to pay as you go on bus, tram, DLR, Underground, Overground, TFL Rail and most National Rail services.

    5. What is the transaction limit?

    To protect you from fraud, we may restrict the value or number of payments you can make using Android Pay, so please make sure you carry your debit card with you just in case. Some retailers will also limit individual payments to £30.

    6. Does it cost anything to use Android Pay?

    No. Lloyds Bank doesn’t charge customers to set up Android Pay or to use it. However, you’ll need an active data plan or Wi-Fi connection to register. Based on your mobile plan and mobile network’s offering, additional message and data charges may apply.

    Your usual debit card charges apply to purchases.

    Setting-up Android Pay

    7. How do I set up Android Pay on my device?

    If Android Pay isn't downloaded to your device already, you'll need to download it from the Google Play Store. You’ll only be able to see the app in Google Play Store if you have an eligible device.

    You can add cards to Android Pay in a few simple steps:

    • Tap the + sign in the app
    • Enter your card details and address details
    • Review and accept the Lloyds Bank terms of use
    • Verify your cards for security, then follow the on-screen instructions
    • You'll be prompted to set up a screen lock, if you don't already have one.

    8. Can I use multiple cards with Android Pay?

    Yes, you can add as many cards as you want. If you have a particular Lloyds Bank card that you prefer to use, then make sure this is the first card you set up, or make this the default card in your Android Pay settings. As devices do not share cards, if you want the same card on two different devices, you will need to load the card onto each device separately.

    9. How do I remove my card from Android Pay?

    It’s easy to remove your debit card. Select the relevant card in Android Pay then select ‘remove card’ at the bottom of the screen. This will remove the card instantly.

    10. As a new customer, how soon can I use Android Pay?

    If you’ve recently opened a Lloyds Bank account, you can register for Android Pay as soon as your plastic card arrives through the post.

    11. Why is the card image in Android Pay different to my actual card?

    There are several reasons why your Android Pay card image may differ from the one on your plastic card: 

    a) You may have a personalised card. If so, Android Pay will show a generic image of the card. 

    b) The card image for your plastic card has been updated. You may need to re-register the card in Android Pay to make the images match. However, the image shown does not affect the use of the card with Android Pay, just as long as other details are correct.

    Using Android Pay

    12. What if I’m having a problem making a contactless payment?

    There could be a number of reasons for this:

    • The payment is over £30
    • You haven’t connected to the data network or Wi-Fi for a while

      For security reasons there is a limit to the number of payments your device can make without connecting to the data network or Wi-Fi. You’ll be sent a reminder when you are near your limit. Just go online using Wi-Fi or your data allowance, then your ‘offline’ transaction allowance will be reset automatically.

    • The card reader does not accept contactless payments

      Not all retailers accept contactless payments yet. Please use another payment method such as your debit card.

    13. How do I use Android Pay to pay for public transport in London?

    Using Android Pay is generally the same as using a contactless payment card (for example, Oyster). You’ll need to touch in and out on tube and rail services. On trams and buses, you’ll only need to touch in.

    • Always use the same device to avoid incomplete journeys and to benefit from fare-capping.
    • Avoid card clash by keeping other contactless cards separate from your device.
    • Make sure you have enough battery life to complete your journey and keep your phone switched on.

    14. Does the Android Pay app show my recent transactions?

    Yes, for each Lloyds Bank debit card, you’ll be able to see the last 10 transactions made using Android Pay on that device. All of your card transactions will still appear on your bank statement in the usual way.

    15. Can I use Android Pay when I’m abroad?

    All retailers who accept contactless payments will accept Android Pay whether they’re in the UK or overseas. Different transaction limits will apply depending on which country you’re in.

    If you use Android Pay to pay with a card overseas, standard overseas charges will apply according to your card’s terms and conditions. Based on your mobile plan and mobile network’s offering, additional message data charges and foreign transaction fees may also apply.

    16. How do I return goods I’ve purchased using Android Pay?

    You’ll need to follow these steps:

    • On the device that you used to make the original payment, select the card that you used to make the original payment. You can check this by comparing the last 4 digits of the Virtual Account Number in ‘Card details’ with the details on the receipt.
    • Hold the device near the reader to receive the refund. You’ll be able to see the refund in your last transactions within the app.

    If, in some places, a refund can’t be paid directly back to the device on which the transaction was made, then the retailer can make the refund back to your plastic card instead. For this reason, always make sure you have your plastic card handy if you require a refund. When the refund is made you’ll see it in your bank statement as normal.

    17. Why am I receiving notifications and how can I turn them off?

    You’ll be set up to receive notifications automatically from your Android Pay app for all payments made through Android Pay using your Lloyds Bank card.

    To turn off ‘Transaction Notifications’, open the Android Pay app, tap the menu, and tap ‘Settings’. Please keep in mind that by turning off ‘Transaction Notifications’ you will no longer receive any notifications from Android Pay.

    Safe and secure

    18. Is Android Pay secure?

    Yes, a unique Virtual Account Number is securely stored on your device so you can make payments with no need to share card details and numbers.

    If your device is ever lost or stolen you can easily find, lock, and delete your details from a device using Android Device Manager.

    19. What is a Virtual Account Number?

    A Virtual Account Number replaces the need for a card number. It’s used to make secure purchases in stores and in apps. It won’t work if it’s compromised in any way and can’t be used outside the device that it’s assigned to. You can view this number in your Android Pay app by selecting “Card details” in the app.

    20. What should I do about Android Pay if my card is lost or stolen?

    Please call the bank straightaway. We will cancel your card so that no further purchases can be made. When we issue your replacement card it will be active immediately. You don’t need to do anything and you can start using your card in Android Pay while you wait for your new plastic card to arrive in the post.

    21. What if my device is lost or stolen?

    Android Device Manager will help you find, lock, and delete your details from a device. Also, you can enter "Find my device" on Google.com and it will show you where it is on a map.

    22. How do I keep my device and card details secure?

    • Never leave your device unattended.
    • Use appropriate security on your device such as passcodes and fingerprint recognition.
    • Only register your own fingerprint (if your device supports this feature).
    • Please be aware of unsolicited messages asking you to install software, to allow access to your devices or to reveal any personal or financial information.
    • Use anti-virus software, update it regularly and accept any updates to the Android OS.
    • Contact us as soon as possible if you suspect any unauthorised use of your device, if it is lost/stolen, or if you think your details have been compromised.
    • Register your device through your Google account (at Google.com). This will allow you to find, lock and delete details on your phone if it is lost or stolen.

    23. What happens when I replace or update my device?

    If you replace or update your device, you’ll need to add your card(s) again to Android Pay using the same set up process as you did before.

    Be sure to remove your card(s) from Android Pay if you sell your phone or no longer use it.
