UnionPay Credit Cards issued by ICBC Singapore are eligible for use on Huawei Pay.Huawei Pay is a mobile payment service launched by Huawei, in cooperation with ICBC and UnionPay in Singapore. Huawei Pay allows you to pay with phones capable of Near Field Communication (NFC), instead of using your physical ICBC cards. You can make secure and convenient payments, simply by tapping your NFC-capable phone against a contactless payment terminal or card reader. To use Huawei Pay, download Huawei Wallet Application from AppGallery and install.
