Android Pay is now available in Taiwan

After what was a pretty slow start, support for new regions by Android Pay is starting to gather pace. A couple of weeks ago, Google pointed to the next 10 countries on the list. After the recent launches in Canada and Russia, Taiwan has now reached the front of the checkout queue – Android Pay is available in the country from today.

At launch, the following banks and cards are compatible with Android Pay in Taiwan:

Banks Supported cards Unsupported cards
Chinatrust Bank CTBC VISA and Mastercard credit card CTBC debit card, prepaid card, commercial card, procurement card
First Bank All VISA and Mastercard personal credit cards VISA Debit Card, Commercial cards

It seems some Taiwanese regulation is limiting support to credit cards for the time being, and it's unclear if that will change anytime soon. There are, at least, a good number of stores in Taiwan that will accept payments through Android Pay, such as PX Mart, Carrefour, Watsons, and more.
