How to enroll
First, check to make sure your phone is compatible with Android Pay. If you already have a card linked to your Google account you can simply add that card to the Android Pay app by confirming a few details, or you can add a new card.
To add a new card to Android Pay:
- Open the Android Pay app on your phone. Note: If Android Pay isn’t downloaded to your phone already, you’ll need to download it from the Google Play Store.
- Tap the Plus Sign button. Note: For the next step, you’ll need your physical card available.
- Position the card you want to add in the window. The app will take a photo of the card to read its information. If you’re having difficulty with this function, you can tap ADD MANUALLY to enter your card’s information instead.
- Enter your card’s CVC code that’s on the back of it.
- Tap the Next (i.e., arrow) icon.
- Review your card’s information to make sure it’s correct and tap CONTINUE.
- Review the Terms & Conditions and tap ACCEPT.If you don’t already have a screen lock set up, you’ll be prompted to set one up.
- Tap ACTIVATE.
Note: To use Android Pay, you must use a screen lock to help protect your information. If you disable or remove your screen lock, you will receive a warning that all of your cards will automatically be removed from the app to protect your information. Complete the steps to set up a screen lock, if haven’t already done so.
