Google Pay is a one-stop-shop for making purchases with your phone. One piece of the puzzle is the ability to manage loyalty and membership cards. We will show you how to free up space in your wallet.
Mobile payments are a big part of the Google Pay service, but it’s about more than just scanning your phone on contactless readers or tracking the expenses of its credit card .
In the same way that you can add a credit card and pay by holding your phone in a reader, putting your loyalty and membership cards in Google Pay allows you to leave the physical cards at home.
Although the loyalty cards are present in the application for iPhone and iPad, it is not possible to add them. You will need an Android device to do that.
First, download Google Pay from Play Store. Make sure you download the correct Google Pay app. This feature does not work with the “old” Google Pay application that is replaced in late 2020 .
Once you have passed the initial registration process, tap on the card icon in the upper right corner of the central “Pay” tab. The icon will appear as your credit card if one has been added to your account.
Then tap “Add a card” at the bottom of the screen.
In the menu, select “Loyalty”.
Find your card business and select it.
A camera viewfinder will open and you can scan the barcode on your card. Alternatively, tap on “Enter Manually”.
Once you have added your card, you will see that it appears with the barcode, ready to be scanned. Google Pay also displays useful information about the business below.
That is all! To use the card in the future, simply touch the card shortcut on the “Pay” tab and select your card.
