About Google Pay

Android Pay is a cloud-based secure digital wallet application designed for processing payments using tablets and smartphone devices. Designed for Android devices, this application allows users to add their cards to an NFC-enabled Android device and use their mobile devices instead of credit cards to make payments in retail stores. Android Pay also serves as an alternative to Google Wallet. Users can make purchases through its Android app and make payments for other Android services, such as movies and music. Android Pay uses virtual account numbers instead of bank account or card details. This helps to add a security layer to making payments. Users who have a fingerprint-reader feature in their smartphones can authenticate their payments using their fingerprints.

It's Google! Always on Top!

I have their POS separately, I wish it were included, and maybe it is and I am daft about it, but Google Pay is fantastic and goes on every single device I have. That is the best, because my tablet seems to not work with the competitor and I have only to use that on my phone. But Google Pay --- I have all their apps, all of them, has just been there whenever I wanted or needed it and it is terrific as I use Google for basically everything, even though I have other wallerts.

Pros

It is really simple and kind of works in the background knowing your habits and is like your best financial buddy! I can pay for games, apps, storage, and more, all of which I do, and I can pay gas, ride transit, and so much more.

Cons

Nothing at all. I have their POS app too. It would be nice to have it all in on.

Complicated to use

Pros

It allows tap pay and bank accounts to be added

Cons

It’s way too difficult to figure out. There’s too many things to choose from and how to add and it makes things confusing

Digital Gateway of Payment I have ever Seen in My Life!

Google Pay appears to be counting on the convenience of having everything in one location. It's a big project with a lot of features to help you handle your money with ease and safety. If you want to have mobile payment, cards, and money management capabilities all in one app, Google Pay is a fantastic choice.

Pros

For my transactions, it is extremely safe and secure. Comparing various apps was quite beneficial. Multiple bank accounts can be added. By entering a secure PIN, we can check our account balance. You can avoid the trouble of having to carry your cards, passes, or tickets in your wallet, as well as searching through your wallet or handbag to find them. Once you've loaded a scanned copy onto your phone, you won't have to worry about leaving them at home. Your data will not be sold to third parties or shared with retailers, according to Google. The cash-back rewards are actual cash, and they will be deposited into your Google Pay account. If necessary, you can deposit the funds into your bank account. Really, i am enjoying this Google pay app for my running business.

Cons

Sometimes transactions are failed may be due to internet connectivity problem or mobile software internal problem, otherwise I like this Google pay app.

Google Pay! The best Payment System till date.

Overall I would say it is a excellent product. Deigned very well keeping in the mind the mass public and and their needs. Digital payments have become so much easier with the availability of Google Pay.

Pros

The best part about Google Pay is the the ease of use. Making and receiving payments has become so easy for both teenagers and adults. It is so easy to use that it took me just once to teach my mother how to use it. Google Pay also allows you to make bank transfers right from the convenience of your current location. No matter which bank or branch; all it takes is a clock of a button.

Cons

The only issue I have had with the soft is the inability to link multiple accounts or a non resident account. I work in a different country form my home country and as per the government guidelines I need to have a Non Resident account for all earnings made from a foreign country. However, once deposited in the Non Resident account the money is converted to my local currency. This account cannot be added on Google Pay. I also attempted to add another account which also belongs to me but there is no option to ad account details and Google Pay automatically attempts to search for the account via mobile number linked to the account. Even after having the same number linked to the account Google Pay can still not find my account.
