Japanese messaging giant Line has launched its mobile payments service, Line Pay, for online and in-store transactions to users around the world.

Line Pay will allow users to connect their accounts with a credit card to make digital payments anywhere, directly from their phones.

Once a credit or debit card is linked to the Line account, it will allow the users to purchase at both supporting physical and online stores, send money to each other and split bill in restaurants.

Both the iOS and Android versions of the app with 560 million registered users will have two-factor authentication system for security.

The firm, which claims 170 million active users, will initially restrict the service to a handful of affiliated services and shops.
