The curious case of Google Pay's disappearing American Express cards has been fixed

The curious case of Google Pay's disappearing American Express cards has been fixed

On Thursday, many American Express customers that had their cards loaded into Google Pay received a notice that their cards had been removed from the app. The cause was apparently a certificate issue, and over the next day or so, some customers had intermittent problems attempting to re-add their cards to Google Pay. We're told the issue has since been resolved, and though your disabled cards probably won't automatically reappear, you should be able to add them back now without any issue.

Android Pay in Spain adds support for American Express and one Edenred card

Android Pay in Spain adds support for American Express and one Edenred card

Android Pay launched in Spain two months ago, and today Google has updated the Pay support site to indicate the addition of two new card issuers: American Express and Edenred.

American Express cards that are supported include the Active Consumer, Business, and Corporate cards. The one Edenred card that is supported is the Ticket Restaurant Card, so maybe that's popular in Spain? I'm really not sure, but all other Edenred cards remain unsupported for now. But Amex support is probably welcome news for a significant number of people.

American Express also announced it on their website, here. This is in addition to the already large number of BBVA cards supported by Android Pay in the country that were part of the service's launch there.

American Express adds Android Pay support in the UK

American Express adds Android Pay support in the UK

It's been a while since we've had any good UK related Android Pay news, the last tidbit being the addition of Metro Bank to the service back in February. You may have seen that American Express got Android Pay support in Canada recently, something I was more than a little bit jealous of as I've been waiting to have my Amex on my phone for ages now. Finally, my calls have been answered, and Amex cards now work with Google's mobile payments app here in the UK.

This makes me happy.

I didn't get a notification about this, which I might have expected given my Amex card is set up in my Google account.
