YouTrip, Singapore’s multi-currency e-wallet, has on Wednesday announced its integration with Google Pay, enabling Android users the convenience to make secure and effortless payments.

This integration marks another significant milestone in YouTrip’s journey to empower users with a more seamless, and smarter experience across different payment options following its Apple Pay launch in August, YouTrip said in a statement.

With this integration, all users are able to add the YouTrip virtual card to their mobile wallets and smart devices, providing users with instant access to their YouTrip account upon sign-up application approval.

This comes in handy as it allows new users to enjoy the best rates with zero foreign exchange (FX) fees and YouTrip perks immediately for their December travel plans, eliminating the need to wait for their physical card to arrive.

“We are thrilled to partner with Google Pay, bringing even greater convenience to our users’ payment experiences in our current smartphone-centric world,

“This integration aligns with our mission to empower individuals with the smartest, most secure and hassle-free way to pay. As we continue to innovate, users can look
forward to more features that seamlessly match their evolving needs and preferences,” said Caecilia Chu, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of YouTrip.

Demonstrating its commitment to providing users with the best possible payment experience as the region’s fintech pioneer for innovative and customer-centric payment solutions, YouTrip unveiled a modernized upgrade to its app interface earlier this year and introduced new features such as its virtual card under YouTrip 2.0.

These improvements, along with the integration of mobile contactless payment through Apple Pay and Google Pay, are part of YouTrip’s continuous innovation to provide users with a more intuitive and hassle-free payment experience.

YouTrip is a Southeast Asian financial technology company dedicated to creating the next-generation of digital financial services for consumers and businesses.

In 2018, it launched the region’s first and leading multi-currency payment app.

With its consumer and corporate products, YouTrip and YouBiz, the company empowers users with the most affordable and convenient financial innovations.
