Pay securely with your phone

No more digging for cards at checkout – just tap and go, knowing that your payments are safely encrypted before, during and after every purchase. When you pay with Google Pay, your real card information is never shared. Instead, an encrypted virtual account number is used to represent your info, so your real card details stay safe. Have control over who can see and use your data in the ‘Privacy Settings’ of your Google Wallet. 

In store payments

Google Pay works anywhere contactless payments are accepted. Just wake up your Android phone or smart watch and hold it near the reader until you see a tick mark. You don’t even need to open the app.

In-app and online payments

Use Google Pay to check out even faster on your favourite apps and sites.

Once you’ve added a card to your Google Wallet, you won’t need to enter your payment details again. Just choose Google Pay at checkout, confirm your purchase and you’re done.
