Android Pay

Android Pay is transitioning to Pay with Google using the the new Google Payment API to support acceptance of both Android Pay tokens and credit cards associated with any Google account. This expands upon Android Pay’s functionality with new capabilities for merchants, including mobile web support.

Rest assured, this new integration will allow you to also accept payments from customers familiar with the Android Pay flow on their devices. If you are an existing merchant who has integrated Android Pay in the past and want to access the Android Pay documentation, you can find it here. We advise migrating your flow to Pay with Google as soon as possible, but we will continue to provide technical support for legacy integrations for now and have no immediate plans to sunset this integration.


Is Android Pay going away?

No -- Pay with Google incorporates and expands upon the existing Android Pay functionality. Cards added to Android Pay by a consumer will still be accessible within Pay with Google for e-commerce transactions.

How long will existing Android Pay integrations work for merchants?

Google will continue to support a merchant’s existing Android Pay integration, but no new Android Pay integrations will be allowed. We recommend that merchants migrate to the new Google Payment API to keep their integration up to date and, in doing so, the new API will enable access and new functionalities including access to cards used for purchases across Google accounts.

What if a merchant would like to integrate with the Android Pay API?

Google is no longer accepting any new requests to launch with the Android Pay API. The Google Payments API offers all of the existing Android Pay functionality and more.

Will merchants have access to Android Pay tokens / payment methods?

Yes, merchants will continue to receive access to Android Pay tokens via the Google Payment API, as well as cards saved to users’ Google accounts.

Where can merchants find legacy documentation for Android Pay?

Legacy Android Pay documentation can be found here. If you’re looking to integrate Pay with Google -- either as a new merchant, or upgrading your existing Android Pay integration -- documentation can be found here.

What do with merchants need to do to migrate from Android Pay to Pay with Google?

You will need to ensure you’re using a Pay with Google-compatible version of our SDK and update your website and/or app to use the new Google Payments API -- documentation can be found here. These changes impact the client component of your integration. Your server-side integration does not need to change.
