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! This account is for your personal use only

An increasing number of customers are being targeted by fraud scams. Before you apply, review these guidelines to help prevent you from being involved in fraudulent activity.

Do not open an account on behalf of someone else
If anyone asks you to open a Simple Account to receive funds, it is an attempt at fraud. Common fraud attempts include requesting that you open an account to receive a gift or bonus offer, obtain a job or job training, or help someone else receive funds (such as unemployment benefits).

Do not share your login or account information with anyone
Neither Simple nor any other legitimate institution will ever ask for your account information. If any third party requests your Simple Account login information, it is an attempt at fraud. Sharing your account information with another person or allowing someone else to use your account to receive funds is a violation of the Simple Deposit Account Agreement terms and conditions and can expose you to fraud.

Actions we may take if fraud is suspected

We take fraud and security very seriously at Simple, and take rapid action in the instance of suspected fraud attempts.

We may freeze and close accounts
We may freeze and close accounts if fraudulent activity is suspected, including the following circumstances:

We will report fraud attempts
We are responsible for reporting fraud attempts to authorities, including attempted unemployment fraud.

If you suspect you are a victim of unemployment fraud, contact the appropriate state fraud hotline listed here.
