Google Pay set to launch in Germany in late June - report

Friday 8 June 2018 | 15:21 CET | News
Google's mobile payment service Google Pay is set to launch in Germany at the end of June, with German retail bank Commerzbank serving as a partner for Google Pay, reported German business daily Handelsblatt. Customers will at first only be able to use credit cards with the service, with cards for checking accounts are set to be added at a later step, industry sources told Handelsblatt. Still, Handelsblatt noted that Google Pay will likely have a limited reach in Germany at first as many bank customers in Germany do not have a credit card.
