Terms and conditions for using your Barclays cards with Google Pay

What is Google Pay?

Google Pay is a way for you to make purchases from merchants or in-app using a phone or other device which can store virtual representations of your debit or credit card. In order to use Google Pay, you will have to register an eligible credit or debit card to your device. You also need to have an eligible Android device.

Meaning of Words

Unless terms are specifically defined in this document, then other terms shall have the same meaning as given in your relevant Barclays account terms.

  • "Google" means Google Ireland Limited whose principal place of business is at Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
  • "Card Account" means the applicable Barclays Personal, Business Banking or Non-Personal current account or, for Barclays UK customers, the payment account connected to your Barclays Personal credit card. For Barclays Private Bank and Barclays International customers, only debit cards are applicable.

Terms and Conditions

These terms and conditions are here to help you understand how you can use your Barclays cards with Google Pay. If you are resident within the UK, this agreement is governed by the laws of England and Wales.

Subject to the terms and conditions relating to your Card Account terms, you agree that Google Pay features and functionality may be automatically updated or upgraded without notice to you.
