Challenger bunq brings Google Pay to Netherlands and Portugal

Digital bank Bunq launched Google Pay in the Netherlands and Portugal this week, being among other banks that introduced Google pay in the countries.

All users in the Netherlands and Portugal will now be able to use the new feature, which is already available in Italy, Spain, France, Germany, Ireland, Belgium, and the UK. However, only Android users will get the option to add Google Pay as a payment option.

Google Pay is a safe and easy way to pay contactless with your NFC-equipped Android phone in physical retail locations or online.

It creates encrypted virtual cards that are securely stored on your device – you can just pick up your phone and pay with a few taps, and it’s available across all bunq plans.

Ali Niknam, CEO and founder of bunq, said: “We’re always challenging the status quo to make life easy for our users, and this is a logical next step.”

“Nowadays paying has to be quick, easy, and safe, so I’m very happy that we’re bringing Google Pay to bunqers in the Netherlands and Portugal!”

The company recently announced that the Bunq community has planted 1 million trees together. This was part of a green initiative undertaken by Bunq. As part of this initiative, the company makes sure a tree is planted for every €100 spent by SuperGreen users.
