Cards of the Russian payment system "MIR" will be connected to the Google Pay service. According to the statements of the largest Russian banks, this will begin on October 26.

As they write "News”, VTB, MKB, PSB,“ DOM.RF ”, Post Bank and others are planning to launch plans to introduce MIR cards into the contactless payment service. However, as noted in VTB, in the fall, banks will be able to work only on their side, and in each credit institution the terms will be different.

Alexander Aznavour, head of the PSB digital services development center, added that over the past year, the use of contactless payments has grown by more than 1,5 times.

Earlier, at the end of April, MIR cards began to be connected to Apple Pay, but the system only started working at eight banks, and three months later. You can use the card from your smartphone using Mir.Pay or Samsung Pay.
