You can add an unlimited number of cards to your digital wallet.

Yes, you can use Google Pay™ on several devices at the same time, e.g. phone and smartwatch.

Please note that if you remove the card from one of the devices, you will not automatically remove it from the other device, as each time a card is digitized/added, a token is created that replaces the physical card with a digital one; thus, the actual card number information is not stored on the device.

The abbreviation stands for near-field communication or non-contact communication. This technology enables smart devices that possess it to exchange data with each other; thus, contactless payments with digitized cards are enabled.

The easiest way to check if your device supports it is from your mobile device settings.

If a payment is refused at a POS terminal, you must first log in to Bulbank Mobile to check the status of your card and, if everything is fine, call the Call Center of UniCredit Bulbank on 0700 1 84 84.

There will be no problem as your digitized card will be automatically reissued and linked to the newly issued physical card.
