Huawei launches its own contactless payment system in Russia

Clients of Gazprombank and Rosselkhozbank - UnionPay card holders - got access to the new mobile payment system Huawei Pay, previously available only to Chinese users. The system includes a digital wallet that allows contactless payments with Huawei and Honor devices. It is assumed that the experience gained in Russia will help the Chinese television giant enter the European market in the future.

For holders of Russian UnionPay cards to test Huawei Pay, they need to download the HUAWEI Wallet app from the HUAWEI AppGallery.

The app is compatible with Huawei Mate 20, Huawei Mate 20 Pro, Huawei Mate 20 RS Porsche design, Huawei P20, Huawei P20 Pro, Huawei P10, Huawei P10 Plus, Honor 10, Honor V10 and Honor 9.
