Google has announced the launch of the Google Pay payment service in Israel. As part of the service, owners of Android devices of various models, will be able to pay through them anywhere that receives non-contact payments. Payment via Google Pay is now available in Israel for credit cards issued by the supporting banks: Poalim, Leumi, Discount, Mizrahi Tefahot, International First and Yahav and of all credit card companies: Isracard, Cal and Max.

As mentioned, the true number of credit cards or debit cards added are never stored on the mobile device or transferred to any business. In fact, transactions made using Google Pay use a virtual card number called a token, which is device specific. The token is associated with a dynamic security code that changes with each transaction.

Also, if the smartphone device is lost or stolen, users can simply use the “Find My Device” function to instantly lock their device from anywhere, secure it with a new password, or even delete it from their personal information. There is no need to cancel the card itself, as its data is not stored in the device.

How to activate and use Google Pay: All you have to do is download the app from the Google Play Store and add a credit card from any of the banks and credit card companies that support the app. To pay in stores, unlock the phone screen and place it near the terminal, without opening the app.

Barak Regev, CEO of Google Israel, said that “the launch of Google Pay is a significant line for Israeli consumers when, from today, the vast majority of them will be able to enjoy secure and fast purchases in Israel and around the world. The high demand for Google Pay services has led all the prominent financial institutions in the country to join us in order to implement the service for their customers. ”
