Tuesday 7 March 2017 | 10:43 CET | News
Google announced the launch of the Android Pay service in Belgium. The service works first for customers of BNP Paribas Fortis, and KBC will be added soon. Android Pay can be used to pay for purchases in more than 85,000 shops, including chains such as Carrefour, McDonald's, Media Markt and H&M. Android phone owners need to download the Android Pay app from the Play store and link a Mastercard or Visa card issued by one of the participating banks to their Android Pay account.
