Use your phone if a merchant asks you to tap your card on the terminal.
Google Pay is a convenient way to use your payment information in stores, but it’s not the only way. For example, use your phone if a merchant asks you to tap your card on the terminal.
If they ask for a pin, give them that too—just not with your phone! Instead, by using Google Pay’s Android or iOS app and tapping “Cancel” when prompted by the barcode reader, you can send all three pieces of information (card number, expiration date, and CVV) through NFC technology contained within most smartphones. This way, you won’t have to worry about entering sensitive data into their systems while keeping things secure since none of those details are stored on their terminals.
And finally, if they ask for a signature? Just say no!
You may still need your credit or debit card at some places, even if they accept Google Pay.
Google Pay is designed to be convenient, easy, and secure. However, you may still need your credit or debit card at some places, even if they accept GPay. In addition, some stores may have different policies or procedures for using a card when making a payment versus using your phone’s payment technology (e.g., Apple Pay vs. Google Pay).
When it comes to businesses that accept mobile payments like GPay and Apple Pay, there are often two ways of making purchases: with the app on your phone and tapping it against the store’s reader device; or with a physical contactless card in your wallet that pairs with the said app via Bluetooth or Near Field Communication (NFC) technology (e.g., Apple Watch).
To get started using either the app on your phone or a physical contactless card, find businesses near you that accept them by visiting our Partner Locator page here!
Google pay is easy and can be used at many major retailers.
Google Pay is a highly versatile payment system. You can use it in stores or almost any online retailer accepting contactless payments. GPay can be used for a variety of purchases, including food and drink at restaurants, clothing from stores like Kohl’s and Macy’s, home goods from Home Depot and Lowe’s, tickets from Ticketmaster or Stubhub (among many others), or anything else you could think of purchasing with a debit card or credit card.
As long as the business accepts contactless payments through Google Pay—or Apple Pay—you’ll be able to pay with your smartphone without having to swipe your plastic card through a reader. This makes shopping even more convenient than ever before!
GPay is a new service that allows you to make payments with your smartphone. Google Pay works with many different credit and debit cards, loyalty cards, and gift cards.
