Any Android smartphones and tablets running Android Lollipop 5.0 or above. To make in-store payments, your phone also needs to support NFC (Near Field Communication). To check for NFC, look for it in your phone’s Settings app. You can make in-app payments even if your phone does not have HCE.
First, download Google Pay from the Google Play Store. Second, you can add an eligible card by snapping a picture or entering your account number manually. If your eligible card is already set up for Google Play, you can simply add that card to Google Pay by confirming a few details.
Simply wake up your phone. No need to open the app.
Hold the back of your device near the contactless payment terminal and wait for the blue checkmark.
When paying within apps:
With Google Pay, you can check out in hundreds of apps without having to enter your payment information. Catch a ride, order takeout, or get tickets to that just-announced show with the simple press of a button.
Visit our website (www.google.com/pay) to see a list of eligible payments cards. We are working to expand the number of payment cards you can use on Google Pay, so check back soon or contact your bank if your card is not currently supported.
With Google Pay, enjoy all the same perks and rewards you get with your physical cards. Add tickets, loyalty and gift cards, PayPal, and more. Keep track of all your purchases, and even get personalised suggestions.
Android Device Manager ( www.google.com/android/devicemanager ) will help you find, lock, and erase your phone. Also, you can simply search “Find my phone” and Google will show you where it is on a map. There’s no need to cancel your credit card.
Your credit and debit card information are assigned a unique virtual account number that’s used at checkout, so your full card details are never shared with the store. Think of it as a digital stand-in for your payment information. To view the last four or five digits of your virtual account number go to “Card details” or “Transaction details”.
