How do I use Android Pay?

When making in-store purchases with Android Pay, simply unlock your mobile device using your fingerprint, PIN, pattern or passcode and hold it near the NFC-equipped payment terminal. You do not need to open the Android Pay app to initiate the transaction. The payment will automatically be processed using your default debit or credit card. To pay with a card other that your default card, prior to making a payment you must unlock your mobile device, open the Android Pay app, tap the card you would like to pay to view the card details screen and select the option "Set as default card." This will make the selected card your new default card. When you attempt to make a purchase with Android Pay, you will now be able to complete your purchase using the desired card.

Your experience with Android Pay may vary by merchant. If asked to verify the last four digits of your card number when making a purchase, provide the merchant the last four digits of the device account number. This number can be found by opening the Android Pay app and selecting the desired card to view the detail page. You may also be asked to provide a signature or debit card PIN to complete your transaction.

How will Android Pay keep my information protected?

Android Pay is more secure than using a traditional credit or debit card since your card number and identity are not shared with the merchant or transmitted with payment, and your actual card numbers aren’t stored on your device.

You still receive all the protection your Centier debit card currently offers including Visa Zero liability fraud protection and debit card on|off available with our Mobile Banking App.

Where can I use Android Pay?

Customers can use Android Pay at most merchant locations equipped with NFC-enabled contactless payment terminals.

What if I need to return an item I purchased using Android Pay?

You must use the same Android Pay enabled device you used to purchase the item to process the return.
