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.
