Google Wallet in Armenia since 2022 Nov 15
As mentioned in Google Wallet’s information central, cardholders of 6 Armenian banks – ACBA, Ameriabank, Ardshinbank, Armeconombank, Converse bank and Evocabank, will be able to store credit and debit cards within Google Wallet, a digital wallet that is also launching in Armenia today, and make payments anywhere contactless payments are accepted. In addition to payment cards, cardholders will also be able to save and access loyalty cards, boarding passes and event tickets in the Google wallet.
Using Google Pay also makes payments safer with multiple layers of security. This includes industry-standard tokenization, which means when you use your card stored in Google Wallet to pay, transactions are made using a virtual card number (a token). This token is device-specific and associated with a dynamic security code that changes with each transaction, providing an extra layer of protection from fraud. In addition, if your phone is ever lost or stolen, you can simply use the “Find my device” function to instantly lock your device from anywhere, secure it with a new password, or even wipe it clean of your personal information.
Your bank decides if its cards work with Google Wallet. Banks may restrict any of their cards from making mobile payments.
If your bank isn’t listed or your card can’t be set up for mobile payments, call the phone number of your bank and get detailed information about contactless payments with Google Pay.
