OnePlus is back in action in full force with the launch of the OnePlus Pay mobile payment system in China. However, the service is compatible only with HydrogenOS. The OnePlus Pay service is only available on OnePlus 7T series smartphones. We expect the launch of OnePlus Pay in India and the US within the next three months.
During the launch of OnePlus 7T, the company had announced that the OnePlus Pay mobile service would hit the devices in 2020. The company has fulfilled its promise by launching the service in China.
There is a possibility that the company could launch the service along with the launch of OnePlus 8 in India. The launch will be most likely delayed due to the ongoing lockdown due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
According to GizChina, OnePlus Pay is currently available inside the Wallet app on the OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro smartphones. Alternatively, you can also double-press the power button to quickly access the OnePlus Pay.
Firstly, you should enter the card details and activate the service. You will be able to make payments with the help of the OnePlus 7T smartphone at POS terminals, which supports NFC-based payments. The purpose of the OnePlus Pay is that you can easily pay at the stores just by showing the device without entering any PIN or personal details.
The OnePlus Pay mobile payment service currently provides cards issued by Guangfa Bank, Minsheng Bank, and SPDB. You can also make use of the credit cards issued by Guangfa Bank and SPDB.
The company is also working to invoke OnePlus Pay service for other smartphones. The upcoming OnePlus 8 series is rumored to ship with OnePlus Pay.
