Using Android Pay with an American Express Card

Android Pay allows you to make purchases using your American Express Card with a compatible Android device. Your Card Member Agreement governs the use of your Card in Android Pay.


You must keep your device and security credentials safe and secure at all times – in the same way you would your actual Card or PIN. Never share your device security credentials or allow another person to register their fingerprint to your device, as that person will be able to make payments using your Card. If you do allow someone access, you will be responsible for their use of your Card. 

We recommend you always use the device lock feature on your mobile device. For more information about safety and security click here.

Unauthorised Use & Lost/Stolen Devices

Call us immediately using the number on the back of your Card if your Android device has been lost, stolen or compromised in any way. We can suspend or remove your Card from Android Pay to prevent further unauthorised use.

Using your information

We use your information to manage your use of Android Pay, present you with updates and to display targeted offers and advertising from time to time. Google share information with us for fraud and identification purposes. We always use your information in accordance with the American Express Online Privacy Statement

When you register your Card to your device, Google may access and process your information, including information about your transactions. We share some of your information with Google to display to you in Android Pay, which Google uses in an aggregated and de-identified way to help improve Android Pay. Google’s use of your personal information is solely governed by Google’s privacy policy.

Using Google technology

American Express has no control over Google’s decisions to change Android Pay or any of its services or products (including Google’s terms of use or privacy policies). In order to use Android Pay, you must agree to Google’s terms of use and privacy policy.
