viva walletPayment provider Viva Wallet recently announced that its customers in 11 countries will be able to use Google Pay from their Android phones. The company’s customers can save their Viva Wallet Debit Card and securely pay on websites, in apps, and stores by using Google Pay.

Customers can start using their phone to tap and pay wherever contactless transactions are accepted, such as in a store or on public transport, giving them the ability to pay without needing to take out their wallet or use a pin pad.

The company’s press statement said, “The security of our Viva Wallet customers is paramount, so along with the convenience of using Google Pay, when our customer links their Viva Wallet Mastercard card, an extra layer of security is added via Mastercard’s “Tokenization” technology.”

Mastercard’s platform is expected to protect the cardholder’s information by replacing account numbers with a unique alternate card number, or “token”, thus offering protection on their payment information with layers of security.

The company said that the new Google Pay integration will be available for its customers in Belgium, Czech Rep., Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Spain, Sweden and the UK.

Recently, JCB and Viva Wallet extended their partnership in a bid to enable contact and contactless payment between Viva Wallet’s European merchants and JCB’s 140 million cardmembers. The roll-out will be extended to an additional 6 European nations, thus allowing the FinTech to bring JCB acceptance to merchants across 23 European countries.
