Android Pay available in Canada. You may want to change defaults

Once you have more than one tap to pay on your phone, you may want to dig into your default settings. Things can get a bit messy. When you have NFC on and Tap to Pay set, you don't have to open the app to pay. If you have an existing tap to pay you should make some settings to make sure everything works. My instructions are for an S8, I'm not sure how different the settings menus are for other devices.

1. Look for the default setting under connections, not the apps in the setting menu. If you look in the Apps menu you will see no defaults set - which seems kind of strange to me. Tap NFC and payment
2. Tap on Tap and Pay (surprise!)
3. Select the default payment system you want to trigger when the app is closed and you use the contactless terminal. At this screen make sure "If open app supports Tap and pay" is set to "Use open app instead of" otherwise there will be a conflict.

Remember you still have to pay for stuff eventually :)
