Interswitch, a leading African integrated payments and digital commerce platform company, has integrated Google Pay onto its Payment Gateway (IPG) platform, offering seamless mobile payment services in Nigeria. This integration allows individuals and businesses to conduct various financial transactions using their mobile devices, such as contactless purchases, peer-to-peer money transfers, and more.
By adding their debit and credit card details to the Google Wallet app, users can now make online payments conveniently. The integration also allows users to pay with international cards or create virtual cards for payment, enabling businesses to cater to their international clients. This integration enhances Interswitch’s commitment to providing cutting-edge payment solutions that facilitate secure and reliable transactions for businesses and customers.
One of the key features of the Google Wallet integration is tokenization, which helps guard against fraud. Additionally, the integration includes a Find my device function that allows users to secure their financial information if their device is lost or misplaced. This feature adds an extra layer of security and reassurance for users.
Jenny Cheng, Vice President and General Manager of Google Wallet, emphasized that the service is available in over 70 countries and territories, allowing users to make payments through their Android phones or Wear OS devices. Users can easily add their debit and credit cards to the Google Wallet app and have confidence in the safety and security of their financial information during transactions.
The integration of Google Pay into Interswitch’s payment platform is a strategic move that expands payment options and increases flexibility for users. It aligns with the growing trend of cashless transactions and reduces reliance on physical payment cards. This development not only enhances Interswitch’s competitive edge in the payments and remittance market but also enables the company to cater to a broader user base.
As Google Pay continues to evolve and expand its capabilities, it aims to provide a convenient and secure way for users to manage their digital payments and financial transactions. This integration with Interswitch further establishes Google Pay as a reliable and trusted platform for mobile payments, offering users a wide range of payment options.
Overall, the integration of Google Pay onto Interswitch’s payment platform opens up new opportunities for users in Nigeria, enabling seamless mobile payments and enhancing the convenience and security of financial transactions.
