Google announced today (20) the arrival in Brazil of Google Pay, a service that unifies Android Pay and Google Wallet, the two payment systems of the giant Mountain View. The application is already available in the Brazilian Play Store and aims to facilitate the making of payments both on the web and outside.
The Google Pay app collects information about all of your purchases, indicates stores close to your location, and even lists information about loyalty programs, gift certificates, and rewards. Through it, you can access, add, and remove credit or debit cards in your Google account.
Google guarantees the security of Google Pay transactions through an advanced integrated protection system. As an extra layer of protection, Google Pay does not provide your actual credit card number when you make a payment.
A novelty here is the partnership between Google and Bradesco: all bank account holders who have Visa credit cards of any category can also use the smartphone with NFC enabled to make payments in physical stores. Other banks and institutions, such as Banco do Brasil, Caixa Econômica Federal, Neon and Porto Seguros, already have the same support.
The company also warns that users of Android Pay will continue to have all their favorite functions in the new application.
