ABN Amro is discontinuing its Wallet app for Android smartphones as too few customers use the device to make payments.

The Dutch bank says that fewer than five percent of its customers have ever used the bank's three-year old Wallet app on Android to make a payment.

The decision to ditch the inhouse wallet comes just a month after ABN Amro rolled out Apple Pay for contactless payments on iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad and Mac.

The Android app will continue to function for two months, before being switched off by the bank.

In January, ABN Amro began offering all of its Dutch customers the chance to link their accounts to a host of Android-compatible wearable contactless payments devices, including fitness bands, watches, keyrings and jewellery.
