  • Users have the option to add Bankia credit, debit or prepay cards to Google Pay

Bankia and Google Pay have signed an agreement whereby the financial institution opens the possibility of using this new methods of payment for easy, quick and secure transactions through compatible mobile phones and smart watches.

As of today, Bankia customers can add their cards to Google Pay to pay both in physical stores and web sites and apps. Customers can add credit, debit or prepaid Bankia cards to Google Play.

To make purchases in stores, users only have to turn on the phone display, without the need to unlock it or open the app and bring the phone close to the payment terminal (POS). For smart watches, opening Google Pay and bringing it close to the terminal is enough. In a few seconds, operation will be confirmed on the display.

If the customer wants to make purchases through e-commerce, web sites or apps, Google Pay can be used as a payment method on compatible websites and apps. Therefore, it is enough to just select Google Pay as payment method and choose the Bankia card to use to make a purchase.

Google Pay has multiple layers of security to protect the user's payment data, as well as one of the most advanced security infrastructures in the world in order to protect user’s data.

In addition, when you use your mobile phone to pay in stores, Google Pay does not share bank card information with the business. Thus, to protect the customer's personal data, a unique encrypted number is used.

"With this agreement, we continue to make progress in one of our priorities, which is to provide our clients with all the digital payment options that may be useful to them", said Felix Uriarte, Bankia's Director of Digital Banking.

Google Pay is available on Android devices with 5.0 or higher operating system and is compatible for e-commerce payments with multiple browsers, such as Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera and Edge, among others, regardless of the platform.
