Suncorp Launches Google Pay for Visa Debit cardholders

“We want to make in-store payments simpler for everyone, so we’ve worked with Suncorp to enable Google Pay in all of their Australian locations. This adds to the millions of merchants around the world where people can seamlessly tap and pay with their phones” – VP of Payments, Google, Pali Bhat.
