Google Pay already works with about 3,000 partners, but that doesn't hinder it from continuing to support more banks and credit unions. After adding 89 financial institutions to the list last month, the mobile payment service just added another 67 just in the US.
The Google Pay team has been busy launching a brand-new app, but they've also found time to keep expanding the list of supported banks. These financial institutions let you add their credit and debit cards to Google Pay for quick and easy NFC payments. Google added 24 banks back in October, and now the company has tacked on an additional 34, in 26 countries around the globe.
Google Pay may be in for a big code refresh, but that doesn't hinder it from expanding its availability to more banks all over the world and in the US. And over the past month and a half alone, the company has added support for a whopping 89 new institutions all over the states. That means we're almost at 3,000 supported banks now, a milestone Google has been creeping up to over the last few years.
It's difficult to overstate the long-term effort Google's been making to get more and more financial institutions signed up to work with Google Pay. A couple years back we were talking about the day its list of US banks might hit a cool 2,000 — a milestone that's in the distant rear-view at this point. And while you might think it would simply run out of banks eventually, we're already creeping up on 3,000. Helping us along the way to get there, we've got nearly a dozen new banks joining the club.
Google Pay is constantly gaining support for new banks and institutions across the globe. Even though the service now works with most large banks, there are still some local credit unions that couldn't work with the mobile payment system. Thankfully, 19 of them have joined the long list of compatible financial institutions since our last update, making it seamless to pay with your phone.
Google Pay is compatible with a wide range of cards from various institutions around the world. Sadly, there are still a bunch of them that don't work with the contactless payment service. Thankfully, it is constantly gaining support for new banks and financial institutions, including the below 29, spread across 22 countries.
With all of the local banks and credit unions in the US, it seems like Google Pay will never stop finding more to add support for. Case in point: since our last update in mid-January, Google has gone ahead and partnered with 67 more stateside banks and credit unions.
Google Pay already supports a plethora of credit cards from a multitude of banks all over the world, but there are still many institutions left that don't work with Google's payment system. It's great to see that the number of compatible banks is rising internationally, and today, we can report a whopping 62 newly added banks — though about half of these are savings banks located in Denmark.
It's been several weeks since we last checked in to see the progress Google was making towards its apparent goal of signing every single financial institution in America up for Google Pay support. Unsurprisingly, Google's been very busy throughout this period, and today we're looking at all the new banks ready to work with the service.
Although Google Pay is gaining support for transit and boarding passes, the service is also frequently adding new financial institutions to its list of partners. Since the end of July, 16 more banks and payment services across Europe, Canada, and Japan, have made their way to Google Pay. Here's the full list below:
