How Google Pay works

Once you’ve stored your cards in Google Pay, you can make contactless payments in stores by holding your Android device up to a card reader. There’s a near field communication (NFC) chip inside your phone and the card reader. Both chips connect to each other and process the payment without needing your physical card or PIN.

How to add a debit or credit card to Google Pay

You can add a new card to Google Pay in a matter of minutes:

  1. Download the Google Pay app on your mobile device.
  2. Open the Google Pay app on your mobile device.
  3. Tap Payment at the bottom of the screen and select + Payment method.
  4. Scan the front of your debit or credit card or add your card number and expiration date manually.
  5. Enter the CVC number found on the back of your card.
  6. Review Google’s Payments Terms of Service and Privacy Notice.
  7. Tap Save.
  8. Your card provider may want to verify your payment method by email, text or phone. Select your preferred method of verification.
  9. Enter the verification code you receive.
  10. Once verified, you can use your newly added card to make payments through Google Pay.
