Android Pay Hits Ukraine Shores Via PrivatBank

Android Pay

Android Pay has been launched in Ukraine via PrivatBank. Initially, it was widely reported that the mobile payment platform was launched in association with PrivatBank. According to Android Police, OschadBank also provides support for Android Pay.

Google published the required information on the Android Pay Help page. You will be able to use Mastercard and Visa credit and debit and cards with PrivatBank. However, Visa Electron and Prepaid cards are not supported by the payment platform.

We expect the support for Visa cards in the upcoming future. The page also directs users to establish contact with the bank with the help of the phone number provided on the rear of the debit or credit card.

The Android Police claims that OschadBank provides support for Android Pay. However, the company hasn’t confirmed it on the official page. If you live in Ukraine, you should contact the bank for the details. Interestingly, the official blog of Google Ukraine or PrivatBank has released any statements regarding the launch of the Android Pay.

According to Wikipedia, Google is gearing up to launch Android Pay in South Korea and Brazil before the end of 2017. Technically, Android Pay is a digital wallet using which users can pay funds via Android Phones, tablets and smartwatches. The platform makes use of near field communication (NFC) to transmit card information to the retailer. With the launch of Android Pay, the need for credit, debit, and PIN will be eliminated.
