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.

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.

Sorry about that, Sheryl. Could you try clearing the app's cache, data and restart your phone to see if it works fine? More info: If the issue persists, we can help you directly here: Thanks for reaching out.

Was working fine up until about a few hours ago. I literally use contactless pay every single day so that I don't have to lug around my wallet at work. Now I can't use it at all because my phone does not meet the security requirements. After updating the app it still doesn't work. (Update) after the bug fix everything works fine. Really helps out.

That's not the experience we want you to have, Dillon. A limited number of Android phones were seeing an error message when trying to use Google Wallet due to a bug. A fix is rolling out to users. You should be able to tap to pay again. If not please let us know.

"unable to load payment info" when trying to use tap-pay. the app layout is absolutely a mess! why would someone think it makes sense for the user to tap on their credit card to add an unrelated loyalty account?! I like the attractiveness and promotional materials offered by the new layout, but not at the expense of basic functionality the user is looking for at the front of a checkout line! The app is not asking for any type of identification verification.
