How do I setup Google Pay?

The process for signing up for Google Pay is the same for both Android and iOS users. You’ll start by downloading the app from the Google Play store or the Apple App Store.

Sign In and Connect

Then you’ll sign in using your Gmail account—you can create a new account if you don’t already have one. Next, you’ll enter your phone number, and Google will send you a code via text to confirm it. Once you’ve verified your information, the app will ask you to select various privacy settings, all of which you can change later if you’d like.

For example, you can opt-in to allow other app users to search for you in the app with your name or contact information, and you’ll be able to choose if you want to earn cash back and discounts.

Personalize Your Settings

Finally, you can decide to turn on the personalization feature, which keeps track of your activity to personalize your experience in the app for convenience. If you’re not sure about that, you can request a reminder in three months or simply leave it off.

Remember, your Google Pay account is tied to your Gmail account. So, if you’ve already added payment information to that account, it’ll show up in the Google Pay app. If not, you can add new payment methods by tapping the Insights tab, then, “Show all accounts.”
You can add your MSFCU MasterCard debit card by taking a snapshot.  (MSFCU Visa credit card cannot be used)

Although you’ll be able to access Google Pay to send money peer to peer via an iPhone or iPad that uses iOS 10 or higher, you can only make contactless payments and pay online or in-app with an Android device (that uses Lollipop 5.0 or higher).
