What is Google Pay and how does it work?
Google Pay is a simple, fast and secure mobile payment service that allows you to make contactless payments with your compatible Android device at contactless terminals in store, online and in-app at participating merchants. To use Google Pay, a card must be linked to Google Pay.
Google Pay uses near-field communication (NFC) technology to facilitate mobile payments.
How secure is a Google Pay transaction?
Transactions using Google Pay are secure; Google keeps all payment information on secure servers. Your full card details are never stored on your device or shared with merchants when you use Google Pay. Merchants are only provided with your Virtual Account Number.
Which phones or devices can I use Google Pay on?
To use Google Pay, your device must be running on Android 5.0 (Lollipop) or higher, and support near-field communication (NFC) and host card emulation (HCE) technology. NFC and HCE are both required for Google Pay to work for in store transactions. Check the Google Pay Help Centre for more information as Google may from time to time make changes to the operating system and device requirements.
