How do I use Google Pay in the store on my iPhone?

It allows you to use your phone to purchase in stores and online. When you use Google Pay, your credit or debit card information is stored on your device and securely transmitted to the merchant’s point-of-sale terminal when making purchases at retail locations that accept contactless payments.

This article will explore how you can use Google Pay in-store on an iPhone.

Google Pay works with these partner stores and transit agencies.

To use Google Pay to pay for purchases in stores and transit systems that accept it.

To purchase at a participating retailer, you need to have your phone with you and the payment card associated with your Google Pay account. First, hold your fingerprint or face on the back of your device against the contactless reader until prompted to keep holding or place it in a more stable position (such as a pocket), and then place your finger on the fingerprint reader or other secure element again when requested.

Open the Google Pay app.

  • Open the Google Pay app.
  • Tap the card you want to use, such as your credit or debit card or an eligible gift card (like iTunes).
  • Tap “Tap to pay” if prompted, tap “Pay with this card.”
  • Confirm the amount of your purchase by tapping “Next” or “Yes.”
  • Tap “Ok” when prompted by Google that it’s okay for apps on iPhones other than Apple Wallet and Android Pay to access your location data (if applicable), then tap “Pay with Google.”

Unlock your phone.

  • Unlock your phone.
  • Verify the GPay app is installed on your device, or download it here. The first time you use Google Pay in a store, you’ll be asked to set up an account and add a payment method before being able to use it anywhere else.
  • To start using it in stores, open the Google Pay app and follow the on-screen steps to set up an account or add a credit or debit card (if necessary). You can also link up another version that’s already been set up through Apple Pay or Samsung Wallet if those are more convenient than creating another new one—look for “add the payment method” within either of those apps’ main screens! Then all that remains is…

Hold the back of your phone against the terminal at checkout until you see “Approved” or until the payment is complete.

Once your payment has been approved, you will see a checkmark on the screen. If you’re using a debit card, it’s time to pay for your items. If you’re using a credit card or gift card, continue shopping!

If you can’t find this feature in the Google Pay app yet:

  • Clear that your phone is up-to-date with the latest version of Android. The Google Pay app may not work if it’s not up-to-date. You can check which version of Android is on your device by opening Settings and going to System > About phone or tablet > Software information.
  • Ensure that another person hasn’t disabled NFC payments from their account (if they have access to it). To reenable this setting, go into Settings > Security & location > Location & security > Device administrators and turn off “Google Device Manager.” Then follow the steps above again until they are green (except for “NFC payments”).

If you don’t see a checkmark, it means that your phone couldn’t interact with the terminal, so follow the instructions at the airport and try again.

  • If don’t see a checkmark, it means that your phone couldn’t interact with the terminal, so follow the instructions at the airport and try again.
  • Check first that both your phone and the terminal are working correctly. If not, then move on to step 3.
  • Confirm that your phone is unlocked. This is important because if it isn’t opened, then Google Pay won’t be able to read its NFC capabilities and communicate with the terminal correctly. To unlock it, swipe up from your home screen until you see an image of someone holding their hand up to their face (this looks like someone wearing sunglasses). Then tap on “Unlock.”
  • you’re holding both sides of your iPhone against one side of a POS machine or payment terminal when paying for something—make sure they’re touching each other ultimately! You can use either side as long as they’re touching each other; this will activate NFC sensors within both devices so they can talk over Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology at close range (less than 8 inches apart).

Try GPay on your iPhone or Apple Watch in stores, apps, and online in the U.S. If a store doesn’t accept contactless payments, you can show them a Google Pay QR code.

Google Pay is a digital wallet that lets you store your credit cards, debit cards, and loyalty cards in one place. You can use it to make purchases at over 1 million stores in the U.S. or pay for items online with participating merchants (see below). With the tap of your phone or watch against a payment terminal’s contactless reader (nearby retailers must have an NFC-capable airport), you’ll never need to carry cash again!

Conclusion

Paying for items in-store with Google Pay is easy and convenient. However, if you have already set up GPay on your iPhone, you must ensure that the card you want to use is stored in the app.
