I know android pay doesn't work anoying in itself

However,

In UK I can use Barclaycard contactless but find it very hard to get it to register the payment at checkout

Others who have this problem (with non Android pay contactless apps) may be interested to know

...if you go into settings... More and NFC

...Uncheck P2P mode and Tag Reading and Writing (obviously leave Tap & pay on)

It works significantly better -- not as perfect as android pay but not far off

Thanks for sharing mate - altho I dont bank with Barclays I'm sure many users will find that really helpful
Unfortunately my bank (Halifax) doesn't have its own payment app, it relies totally on andriod pay but can live without it for now

thanks a lot! I've been using Barclay's app, did notice it works a bit on and off. i will try your suggestion!
turning off P2P mode, will also disable Android Beam
turning off Tag mode, will disable the use NFC tags.

I hardly use Android Beam. So won't really miss that.
Occasionaly I use NFC tag to pair up with Bluetooth devices. I'll just need to remember to turn this setting back on in case I need it.
