UnionPay International launches mobile wallet in Pakistan

Monday 16 March 2020 09:57 CET | News

UnionPay International has rolled out the mobile payment product of Huawei Pay in Pakistan in partnership with Huawei and the National Bank of Pakistan (NBP).

 

The new service allows local Huawei/Honor phone users to pay via both contactless and QR code payments and is the card scheme's first mobile-wallet service to feature dual payment options overseas.

The dual payments function of UnionPay's mobile payment products adds QR code-based payment onto contactless payment, and can be applied to any NFC-enabled smartphone. With this function, users only need to link their card to their mobile phone once, and then access multiple mobile payment methods, according to a press release.

Now for users in Pakistan, they can link UnionPay cards issued by NBP to the mobile-wallet app Huawei Pay and then can choose to make tap & go or scan & go payments as they like or according to the acceptance condition of a particular merchant. Additionally, users can access the payment function conveniently by fingerprint authentication, without having to open the app.
