Google Pay introduces many new features only for the citizens of Singapore. Google brings a better Google Pay for Singapore citizens. It is making money simple, secure and helpful for everyone. Singaporeans were already using Google Pay to tap onto public transport and pay for purchases at more than 80,000 checkout counters.
Google Pay Integration With PayNow
Google has now integrated with Singapore’s national real-time payment service – PayNow. With the PayNow integration, you can send money to anybody in Singapore, even if they’re not on Google Pay. All you need is their phone number. It’s a feature that we introduced for OCBC customers earlier in the year—we’re now extending it to customers of DBS Paylah! and Standard Chartered Bank.
OCBC, DBS Paylah! and Standard Chartered Bank customers can also use their linked accounts to pay any business that has a PayNow QR code displayed, allowing merchants to receive payments in their corporate bank accounts.
Google Pay – Create Groups & Divide Bills
In just a few taps, you’ll be able to see a past payment with a business, or find a friend to pay. Plus, sending money to someone new is as easy as sending a chat message, just start entering their phone number. Singapore is the first country where Google Pay users can form groups to organize and manage payments, as well as divide bills and other joint expenses within the app.
Just for Singapore: food and movies
You can split bills with Split Bill feature in Google Pay. Now as dine-in services are resumed, you must try this feature by going out with friends. With the new Google Pay, you can skip the box office queue by booking a movie ticket and reserving your seats instantly within the app. They’ve just added Golden Village locations, in addition to Shaw Theatres—giving moviegoers a total of 174 screens to choose from across Singapore.
