KBank Visa Credit Card adds Tap-and-Pay service via smartphone, partnering with Google Pay for easy tapping, fast payments, and card-free transactions worldwide

Reaffirming its leadership in payment innovation, KASIKORNBANK (KBank) has been continuously expanding its mobile credit card payment services. Recently, Mr. N​atthapol Luepromchai, Executive Vice President of KBank, joined Ms. Jenny Cheng, Vice President and General Manager of Google Wallet at Google, to launch the integration of KBank Visa Credit Card with Google Pay in the Google Wallet app. This service is available to Android smartphone users (version 7.0 and above) who can simply tap their smartphones to pay using Google Pay at any merchant that accepts Google Pay  or contactless payments. This convenient, fast, and secure method eliminates the need to carry a physical card and allows for payment transactions worldwide. This initiative serves as an alternative payment option for KBank Visa Credit Cardholders in response to the digital lifestyle. As evidenced, the Bank of Thailand's "The Way We Pay 2023" report shows the continuous growth of digital payment channels over the past four years (2019-2023). Credit cards remain the most popular payment method among Thais, with an average transaction value of 1,293 Baht per person per transaction.
