Axis Bank says users will earn a 5% reward in the form of cashback on bill payments via Google Pay. Additionally, users also get 4% to 5% cashback for spends made on daily use categories such as food ordering, online grocery delivery, cab rides for transactions made on partner merchant platforms such as Swiggy, Zomato, BigBasket, Grofers and Ola. In addition to that, users will get an unlimited 2% cashback on all other transactions.
The company says that users will be able to get cashback directly into their ACE Credit Card accounts. Additionally, the tokenisation feature enabled in partnership with Visa, will allow Google Pay users to use their ACE Credit Card to make payments through a secure digital token attached to their phone without having to physically share their card details.
