Google is expanding Google Pay services across the globe. Google Pay now allows users in the United States to transfer money to any Google Pay users in India and Singapore.
Individual users are the only ones that can receive money from abroad via Google Pay. This implies that you cannot send money from the United States to businesses in India or Singapore using the app.
Users in India are also unable to transfer money to the United States using the Google Pay app. Google has collaborated with Western Union and Wise for this new service. Google will extend the service to approximately 280 countries globally later this year.
In a blog post, Google stated that Western Union would provide unlimited free transfers while using Google Pay until June 16. Wise would provide new customers with a free first transfer up to $500.
Google, however, has not yet announced the precise transfer fee that service providers can charge after its initial free services.
“Starting today, Google Pay users in the U.S. will be able to send money to Google Pay users in India and Singapore, thanks to a new integration with Western Union and Wise. By the end of the year, we expect that the U.S.
Google Pay users will be able to send money to people in more than 200 countries and territories through Western Union and to more than 80 countries through Wise”, says Google in a blog post.
