It will first be experienced ICBC UnionPay Credit Cardholders
Industrial and Commercial Bank of China and UnionPay International have partnered to launch Huawei Pay in Malaysia.
In fact, the cashless service will be provided via NFC-supported Huawei devices. To use the service, users do not need to unlock a phone first, connecting to the internet, or turning on the application. That’s because fingerprint authentication will be the only needed tool.
To enable Huawei Pay on their devices, users can connect CBC UnionPay Credit Cards to the Huawei Wallet app. They can then tap their Huawei devices to a nearby supported payment unit.
Until now, Huawei Pay has been implemented in Macau, Hong Kong, Thailand, and Singapore.
We’ve reported that Uber partnered with Marqeta to provide payments infrastructure and global cards.
