Google is one of the major providers of mobile phone-based payment services. With Google Pay, you can use an Android phone as a means of payment in any shop with a contactless payment terminal or to make purchases in apps and in online stores. You can also add all your credit cards to Google Pay and gather all your purchases together on your own Google account.

Monobank is a fully digital bank whose goal is to deliver the best customer experience, and an important part of its growth strategy is geographic expansion.

“We are proud to be one of the first banks in Norway to provide customers with Google Pay. As a digital bank, it is natural for us to give our customers the opportunity to use new forms of payment and innovative digital services. In order to be quick to market, it is important to have good partners that support both global trends and national initiatives. EVRY is at the forefront of developing card and mobile payment solutions, and is an important contributor to our ability to deliver new services and products as early as possible”, comments Martin Valland, CTO of Monobank.

“Paying for things should be easy, quick and secure, and innovation and customer engagement are high on Monobank’s agenda. We are proud to be a contributor to Monobank’s launch of Google Pay. Its customers will now have access to a user-friendly payment method that can be used in millions of locations in many countries”, comments Christer Jonsson, SVP Cards at EVRY.
