PITTSBURGH, Sept. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- PNC Bank is among the first financial institutions to offer its customers access to Android Pay™, which begins rolling out today.
Android Pay allows customers who register their PNC consumer or small business debit or credit cards to make purchases using any eligible Android mobile device at participating merchant locations. Android Pay works with all NFC-enabled Android devices running Android OS 4.4 (KitKat) or higher. Android Pay will be available for download on Google Play in the next few days and will come preinstalled on new NFC-enabled Android phones from major carriers.
With Android Pay, the customer's card number is never stored on the physical device and is never shared with the merchant when purchases are made at the point of sale. Instead of using the customer's credit or debit card number, a virtual account number along with a dynamic, transaction specific security code is used to process payments.
With Android Pay, PNC Bank debit and credit cards transactions are still protected by PNC Security Assurance.
More than 1 million locations will accept Android Pay.
