Registering for Google Pay

1. Check that your device is compatible with Google Pay

To use Google Pay, your device will need to be running Android 4.4 (KitKat) or above. To find out what version of Android your phone is running, open your app drawer, tap Settings, then About phone and scroll down until you find details of the Android version. Alternatively, search for the Google Pay app in the Play Store. You'll only be able to download it if your device is compatible.

2. Add a card to your Google Pay app

Open the app and select the “+” button. Then tap “Add a credit or debit card” and follow the instructions.

3. Verify your device

To make sure it's you who's trying to register the device, we'll give you the option to complete the verification by SMS or a phone call. If you choose SMS, we'll send a verification code to your mobile. Enter this in the Google Pay app to complete set-up.

4. Start spending!

And that's it - you're ready to start spending with Google Pay. In most stores you'll be able to spend up to £30 per transaction. In apps, there's no upper limit.
