Can I use Google Pay with Simple?

Yup! You can use your Simple card with Google Pay. Follow the steps below to get up and running.

Setting it up

To get started, install the Google Pay app, open it up, and add your Simple card number. Check out Google’s step-by-step guide for detailed instructions.

The info on your card will be cross-checked with the info on your phone. If it matches, your card will be instantly verified and you’ll be good to go! If it doesn’t match, you’ll be asked to submit additional verification.

Verifying your card (if you need to)

During the process of adding your card, your bank information will be verified. This step is often automatic, but you may be asked to verify with 2FA using your phone number or email address.

What if something happens to my phone?

If your phone is lost or stolen, you can disable Google Pay with the Android Device Manager. Temporarily blocking your card will also prevent unauthorized transactions from going through.

Managing your notifications

  • The Google Pay app will automatically send you push notifications when you make a purchase with Google Pay.
  • The Simple app will also notify you when you make a purchase with your Simple card.
  • That means you might get two push notifications for a single purchase.
  • If you don’t want double notifications, you can disable them for either Simple or Google Pay from that app’s settings.

Important! Keep your account safe from fraud

As fraud attempts are on the rise recently — especially related to unemployment funds — help us keep your account safe by following these guidelines.

Use your Simple Account only for your own personal use. Don’t share your account with others or receive funds on behalf of third parties.

Don’t share your username or password with others. Never give out your login information. Simple will never ask you to tell us your password — if any third party makes such a request, it’s an attempt at fraud.

Don’t open an account at someone else’s request. If someone else asks you to open a Simple Account — such as a real estate company, prospective employer, or someone you met online — it is likely an attempt at fraud.

Be alert for unemployment insurance fraud. You may be violating the law and the terms of your Simple Account if you receive deposits of unemployment funds on behalf of someone else. There are state and federal penalties for unemployment insurance fraud (including potential fines and incarceration). If you suspect you are a victim of unemployment fraud, contact the appropriate state fraud hotline listed here.

Don’t receive funds on behalf of a third party. Keep in mind that receiving funds on behalf of a third party violates the terms and conditions of your Simple Account; in such instances, we may restrict and/or close your account and hold the funds while we await direction from enforcement agencies.
