The Google Wallet API provides an Android SDK to make it easier for you to integrate Google Wallet capabilities directly in your Android apps with native code.
To use the Google Wallet Android SDK, you must provide the package name of your Android app, and the SHA-1 fingerprint of your app signing certificate. These credentials are used to authorize publishing access for your app, and authenticate requests sent by your app to the Google Wallet API.

- Click the 'Additional features' tab.
- In the 'App Permissions' box, click the '+ Add an app' button.
- Enter the package name of your app and your SHA-1 fingerprint.
- Click 'Add application'.
If your package name and app appear in the 'App Permissions' box, your app is authorized to send requests to the Google Wallet API using the Google Wallet Android SDK.
