Huawei Pay headed to Russia, to go to Eastern Europe next

Peter, 30 January 2018

The mobile payment game is heating up with a new competitor – Huawei Pay. The tech is already established in its home country of China, but now the company has signed a deal with China’s UnionPay to bring the service worldwide.

The first overseas market will be Russia. Ten Russian banks have issued 1.3 million UnionPay cards, which can be used on 400,000 terminals. Next in line is Eastern Europe. The competition – Samsung, Apple and Google – are largely focused on West European markets.

Dont support Chinese vendors. They are crooks and spies.

Well, OnePlus bank account scandal will be nothing with what could happen here. Huawei is banned in USA, Australia... it goes on and on. There's lotd of evidences of them stealing your information and sending it to unknown servers in China,...

That's exactly what I'm thinking right now. Australia banned them too, you said yourself that USA banned them, ton of countries banned Huawei, and people should trust them with their bank accounts?
