Button Pay is paying with the Button on your LoopPay device. The App does not have to be active, but in order to use Button Pay, the option has to be set to Always or to a Timer in Button Pay Options.
See how Button Pay is used in a video.
1) During Get Started Wizard, the App asked you to confirm your Button Pay setting but you can always change it. Go to Settings, choose Device Settings, and choose Button Pay.

The 10 minute setting can be useful if you are handing your LoopPay device or even your phone to a server to pay a restaurant bill. The timer locks Button Pay after 10 minutes or 8 hours.
