Qatar announces the launch of Google Pay in Qatar, allowing customers to pay easily and securely with their Android phones and ‘Wear OS’ devices (Tablets & Watches) online and in stores that support contactless payments.
Customers can add their supported Bank Credit or Debit Cards into the Google Pay App, then hold their phone or Wear OS device near a payment terminal to make a contactless payment in just a few seconds, a statement explained. Google Pay is accepted in grocery stores, pharmacies, taxis, restaurants, coffee shops, retail stores, and many more places.
Every Google Pay purchase is secure as it is authenticated with Face ID, Touch ID, or device passcode.
As a further security element, the actual card number is neither stored on the device nor in the system of the merchant, the transactions are made using a unique Device Account Number, called a token, hence keeping customer’s personal information private and secure.
