Barclaycard adds contactless payment support to its official Android app

Barclays has brought contactless payments to Android in a recent update, which will prove useful for those who remain patient for Android Pay to launch in the UK. Should you be with the bank you’ll be able to use the Android app to pay for goods without having to use your credit card. As is the case with contactless payments in the UK, you’ll be limited to just £30 per transaction.
In order to take advantage of contactless payments, you’ll need to have your account setup to use the mobile app, but once everything is ready to go, all that’s required is for the app to be fired up and away you go. Check out the "Contactless Mobile" menu option on the left inside the app for more details. This will allow you to configure your phone and connected payment cards.
Until Android Pay launches in the UK, this is a neat temporary solution for Barclays customers.
