YMMV Trick: If you tap to pay at a vending machine, the vending machine will place a temporary charge on your card and then you can cancel the transaction before selecting an item and it will still count towards your 10 taps.
Taps have to be at least 5 minutes apart, per the terms.
For those not seeing any offers, try the following trick:
- Download/Update Android Pay from Play Store (if not on current version)
- Open the app and ensure you are signed in. Must have a form of payment added to account.
- On the home screen of the app, scroll all the way up till you see the three vertical dots or hit the menu button and go to Settings.
- Turn ON the "E-mal" switch.
- Return to home screen of App and if the offer is available to you, then it will appear there.
FYI, if you're on android and modded, Android Pay can STILL work, assuming:
- You're using systemless root
- You're on stock rom (or a custom rom that works with AP like purenexus)
- You haven't installed any apps that modify the /system partition
- FYI Adaway can be installed without modding system with a special zip - (I don't think Adaway is supposed to modify system. I installed it through an APK and didn't have to do anything special for it.) - AdAway modifies the hosts file to block ads, which is located by default in the /system partition. Let me rephrase. The installation of Adaway should not modify system in a way that conflicts with Android Pay. Nor does the use of it, which is what you're referring to - it modifies the hosts file in system. I have Adaway and Systemless root and AP works fine. Things like Xposed must be uninstalled though as that modifies /system in a way that DOES affect AP.
- You can check your SafetyNet API status with this app: https://play.google.com/store/app...ound&hl=e
- This SafetyNet checker checks to see if your card will go through as well. It may have false results, but just know if you ever get a pass once, you should be good to go as opposed to always getting a fail:
PS: Not all true only if you have N6p and N5x won't work with other modded devices.
