Send & receive money

+ Transfer money easily to friends & family safely

+ Create a group to send and receive money for things like trips, dinner, bills, rent, and more. Google Pay will even help you do the math on who owes what.

+ Money transfers are instant and free with Google Pay balance. There are no fees if you use your linked bank account to withdraw funds.

Your shared payments stay with the group

+ When you send a payment with Google Pay, it’ll stay between you and your friends. Only the people involved in the transaction will see it.

Pay contactless

+ Pay with your phone anywhere contactless payments are accepted. Just unlock it, hold it to the reader, and go.

Connect with your favorite businesses and discover new ones

+ See businesses where you’ve used Google Pay when you open the app. Get quick access to your transactions and activate offers.

Shop online

+ Use Google Pay to check out quickly and securely when you shop on websites and apps.


A more rewarding way to shop

+ Get cashback for things like paying friends. Any money you receive will go straight to your Google Pay balance so you can use it instantly.

Take your rewards even further

+ Activate offers and get cashback for redeeming them – whether you use Google Pay or your plastic card. Better yet: get twice the rewards when you redeem with a cashback credit card.


Stay on top of your spending

+ See the total balance and weekly summaries from all of your eligible accounts in one place, so you’ll always know exactly what’s coming in and what’s going out.

+ View recent purchases and upcoming payments to see how you’re spending.

Access all your transactions with a simple search

+ With your permission, you can see activity from accounts you've linked. Import receipts from Gmail and Google Photos and then simply search for any of them.


Authentication for every payment

+ You'll need to use your fingerprint, pattern, PIN, or face to verify your identity each time you open the app or make a payment — only you can pay or send money.

Keeping your private information safe

+ Try out a more personalized experience to see the most relevant offers from stores and get recommendations for ways to save. Turn it on or off at any time.

+ Manage and control personalization and other privacy settings like location preferences and contact syncing from settings.

Your cards encrypted

+ When you pay cashless with your Android phone, Google Pay shares a unique Virtual Account Number instead of your actual card number with the business, so your payment info stays safe.

Posted from another device but mot showing here. I am about to delete this app. I do not get emails when a transaction occurs. Going back and forth with support and getting nowhere. They keep asking for a screensot. A screensot of emails??? Getting emails is a security need. It has become obvious that a bot is responding to my emails to support. I am looking for another app.

Whatever you did on the update, undo it! I loved using the contactless option in a pinch. I had one card stored in the account, just in case I didn't have cash on me. For the past week when I've tried to use the app with contactless pay I get an error "unable to load your payment info". I've verified my account. Even added additional accounts and still get the same error. So frustrating.

First thing is first the app does not sync to all your devices. For some reason. You have to add the cards over and over and even though it's on the same account it says if it's adding it to a new account which is very strange. The second of all not all the cards will support. For example, i had one particular bank account That was easily added to this app. However, when I lost the card and reported it lost or stolen, I took it off of this app and then tried to add the new one and it didn't work
