Android users Down Under need not bring a wallet with them ever again. Google finally launched Android Pay Australia this week. What do you need to know before signing up for this service?

Google went with an “all or nothing approach” with their digital wallet service in Australia. Or at least, that’s what Gizmodo thinks. While Google’s direct competitors can only support one or two bank partners, the tech giant launched with 35 partner financial institutions. Android Pay is compatible with Visa and American Express credit and debit cards. It will also support MasterCard accounts soon.

Android Pay Australia isn’t the only digital wallet service available locally, though. Both Samsung and Apple have similar services here. Apple launched their digital pay service in Oz late last year. However, it’s only compatible with American Express and ANZ credit cards. Samsung Pay, meanwhile, launched early this year. It’s also only compatible with two bank partners. It can just be used with American Express and Citibank accounts. Android Pay supports more financial institutions than either of them.
