Mumbai, Dec 7 (UNI) Qwikcilver, a Pine Labs company and a global leader in end-to-end gifting and stored value solutions, on Monday launched its Spot on Google Pay’s Spot Platform, which allows merchants to create branded commercial experiences within its app.
Qwikcilver has launched the Woohoo virtual gift card store on Google Pay Spot Platform enabling Google Pay users to purchase and send gift cards in real-time.

Commenting on the partnership, Kumar Sudarsan, President – Gift, Prepaid and Stored Value, Pine Labs said, ‘With the launch of Woohoo on Google Pay Spot Platform this festive season, will offer more reasons for consumers to rejoice. We are privileged to have launched our Spot on Google Pay’s Spot Platform which continues to witness an increase in acceptance and adoption amongst consumers and merchants1 amidst the ongoing pandemic. The initiative is aimed at easing the entire process of purchasing and sending digital gift cards on the back of changing consumer behaviour.’
‘The uniqueness of a digital gift card is that it can be purchased instantly for last-minute gifting without losing the personalized touch and providing the receiver the freedom to spend. While Qwikcilver has enabled Woohoo digital gift card store as a preferred destination for consumers, the presence on Google Pay will enhance consumer experience to use digital gifting with a click of a button,’ he further added.
