HSBC India partners with Google Pay for tokenisation on its credit card portfolioHSBC India has partnered with Google Pay(GPay) and Visa to provide a secured tokenization on its credit cards.

  • Because of this partnership, contactless payments can be done by linking HSBC credit cards in Google Pay and it will help to avoid physical contact for payment.
  • This is done based on the principle of NFC(Near Field Communication),QR pay and in-app purchase


The main objective of this partnership is to provide enhanced security and convenience for the card holders


  •         The process of replacing a card’s sensitive information like card number, expiration date, security code with a device-specific alternate code, or ‘Token’ is called Tokenization.
  •         This process eliminates the need of sharing the card number,expiry date or security code by only sharing the token number specific to the card.
