Qatar Islamic Bank (QIB) has introduced Google Pay to debit, credit, and prepaid cardholders who can start using their Android and WearOS devices to tap and pay on the go. Google Pay is a digital wallet and payment platform from Google that enables customers to pay for transactions with their QIB cards using their Android and WearOS devices in-stores and online, where contactless payments are accepted.

Cardholders will be able to store credit, debit, or prepaid cards on the Google Wallet app to start using Google Pay. Customers with Android and WearOS devices that enable NFC payment, known as mobile contactless payment, can make safe, fast, and convenient purchases with multiple layers of security in-stores and online.

How to enable it?

To set up Google Pay, customers need to update their device software, download the Google Wallet app from the Google Play Store and enter their card details manually or by scanning the card, then enter a one-time password (OTP) and start using the feature by simply unlocking their phones. 

Additionally, customers can set up Google Pay on their watches by setting a screen lock and following the instructions on the phone to add their credit or debit cards and the card will be shown on the watch.

QIB’s officials explained that with the rising demand for contactless transactions and customers’ preference to use simple and secure payment solutions, they are happy to collaborate with Google to offer their customers a seamless digital payment experience.
