How will the virtual card be used?

It is designed for one-to-one use cases and uniquely mapped to the physical social security card. This service is issued by the national social security card platform and managed by the Chinese Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security.

Similar to a physical social security card, the electronic social security card is unified and universal throughout the country and has the features such as identity certificates, information records, self-service inquiries, medical insurance settlements, payment and benefit collections, and financial payments.

Huawei wallet allows one to conduct digital transactions on smartphones and terminals. Aside from transactions, the app allows people to add their loyalty cards, gift cards, and coupons. One can instantly add his bank card to pay in-store with just a tap or scanning the bar code.
