Nachdem Apple Pay is already a complete success in Austria, Google Pay is now also taking off. At the beginning there are five banks. All information.

I guess it doesn't take much longer to explain how Apple Pay and Google Pay work. If your own bank supports one of the services, you can activate it via the banking app. After that, all you have to do is hold your smartphone or smartwatch up to the NFC terminal at a cash register. Especially now in the COVID-19 pandemic, such services are experiencing an upswing, as there is no longer any need to handle cash.

Google Pay in Austria: Five banks are involved

Mastercard is now offering Google Pay in cooperation with a total of five banks. N26, Revolut, Curve, Monese and Viva Wallet are included. After a successful setup, you can pay immediately with an Android smartphone or a smartwatch with Wear OS. A connection to the internet or an open banking app is not necessary.

No. Google support writes:

"To use Google Pay on your watch, you need to:

* Be in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Poland, Russia, Spain, UK, or US.
*Use a supported watch. Google Pay is already installed on supported watches. To see if your device is supported, check if Google Pay is in the list of apps on your watch.
* Use a supported card. Note: Using PayPal on Google Pay isn't supported on watches. "

Pffft.
