The fast, simple way to pay.

Google PayTM is the fast, simple way to pay in millions of places — online, in stores, and more. It brings together everything you need at checkout and keeps your payment info safe in your Google Account until you’re ready to pay. Plus, Google Pay makes it easy to keep track of purchases, redeem loyalty points, and get personalized suggestions to help you save time and money.

How does Google Pay work?

Google Pay works anywhere contactless payments are accepted. Just unlock your phone and hold it near the terminal. You don’t even need to open the app. No need to enter your payment info. When you use your phone to pay in stores, Google Pay doesn’t send your actual credit or debit card number with your payment. Instead, a virtual account number is used to represent your information — so your card details stay safe.

How will Google Pay keep my information secure?

Google Pay protects your payment info with multiple layers of security, using one of the world’s most advanced security infrastructures to help keep your information safe. If your phone is ever lost or stolen, you can lock and erase it from anywhere with Find My Device.

Which merchants currently accept Google Pay?

Google Pay is accepted at millions of places around the world. You can use it anywhere you see either the Pay Wave® or Google Pay symbol at checkout.

Fast and easy. The way paying friends should be (Peer-to-Peer Payments)

Google Pay lets you send money to anyone with an email address or phone number — they don’t even need the Google Pay app. And when it’s your turn to pick up the tab, you can get the money sent straight to your bank account. No need to cash out.
(Note: Right now, peer-to-peer payments are only available in the USA.)
