If you’re looking to make online purchases, Google Wallet can be an excellent tool to make your life easier. Instead of having to fill out your credit card information every time you buy something, with Google Wallet, all you have to do is enter your PIN number (if you want) and tap the device on a scanner at the store. It’s simple, convenient, and easy on security. Here’s how to set up your Google Wallet account so that you can take advantage of these benefits right away!
Step 1) Create a Google Account
If you don’t have a Google account yet, you’ll need to create one. Visit the Google Accounts sign-up page and enter your name, birth date, and a valid email address. Then follow the steps to create a password and choose some security questions. Once you’ve completed all the required fields, click Next step. Choose which kind of Gmail account you want (Gmail or Google Apps) and then type in your mobile phone number.
When prompted, tap on Set up my mobile phone now. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete this process by providing a verification code that will be sent to your mobile device via SMS message or automated voice call (depending on what option you chose). Click Finish setup when finished. Finally, check your inbox for an email from Google with a confirmation link. Click the link in the email to confirm ownership of your new account.
Step 2) Sign in with Google Wallet
If you haven’t already, sign in to your Google account. Once you’re signed in, open the Google Wallet app. Tap the + in the bottom right corner of the screen. Select Create a new wallet. Choose the type of wallet you want to create. Add the required information and tap Next. Review the terms and conditions and tap I agree. Tap Create wallet.
Enter your name and email address. Then, enter a password that’s at least 8 characters long. Finally, choose whether or not you’d like to receive emails from Google Wallet about future updates or offers. Tap Finish setup. Your mobile phone number is now linked with your new Google Wallet account!
After setting up your mobile phone number with Google Wallet, it’s time to link a credit card with it so that you can start making purchases through the app!
To add a credit card to your account:
– In the My Accounts tab, click Link bank or card under Credit cards.
– Enter the details of the card you want to link (e.g., credit card number).
– Click Save changes when finished!
Step 3) Link a Credit Card
Adding a credit card to Google Wallet is a simple process that only takes a few minutes. Here’s how to do it 1) Click on the plus sign in the upper right-hand corner of the screen and select Add New Credit Card.
2) You’ll then be prompted to enter your credit card number, expiration date, and security code (the three-digit number on the back of your card).
3) Enter this information correctly and click Next. You will now see two prompts. The first prompt asks you if you want to allow this payment method from any device; make sure you select Yes so you can use Wallet when you’re not at home or work. If you’re not comfortable with that option, just leave it unchecked. The second prompt allows you to choose whether or not this card should be used as your default payment method;
4) Choose one of these options before clicking Done. If you want the card to be used as your default way to pay, check the box next to Use As Default Payment Method. Otherwise, uncheck the box and then click Done. That’s all there is to it!
Step 4) Get an ATM/Debit Card (optional)
You can use your debit card to withdraw cash from ATMs or make purchases anywhere that accepts major credit cards. When you’re ready to set up your Google Wallet account, follow these steps:
1.Download the Google Wallet app from the Google Play Store.
2.Open the app and sign in with your Google account. If you don’t have a Google account, you can create one during the sign-up process.
3.Enter your debit card information. You’ll need the 16-digit number on the front of your card, as well as the expiration date and CVV code on the back. After entering this information, tap Add Card. Once you’ve added all of your cards, tap Done at the bottom of the screen.
Now you’re ready to start using Google Wallet! The first time you make a purchase using Google Wallet online or in an app, we’ll ask for your name and billing address so we can verify your identity. To pay, just show your phone to the cashier and they’ll swipe it over their terminal. To send money, just enter the recipient’s email address or phone number and enter how much you want to send. That’s it!
Step 5) Use it at stores
You can use Google Wallet at millions of stores, both online and in person. To pay in stores, just unlock your phone and hold it near the contactless terminal. You don’t even need to open the app. If you’re shopping online or in an app, look for the Google Pay button at checkout.
You can also use Google Wallet to send money to friends and family. Just enter their email address or phone number and choose how much you want to send. The money will go straight into their bank account. And if they don’t have a Google Wallet account, they’ll get an email or text message telling them how to claim the money.
You can also withdraw cash from any ATM using your Google Wallet card. Just select ATM Withdrawal on the app’s home screen, then follow the instructions on screen. Your card is instantly ready to spend and works like any other debit card.
It’s free to withdraw money this way as long as you do it from within US (sorry folks outside the US). But keep in mind that there are usually fees associated with buying something with your card—just like there are with all credit cards! So make sure you know what those fees are before deciding to make a purchase.
Another thing to consider is whether or not withdrawing money would be easier than topping up funds with another card. Different banks may charge different rates when withdrawing cash depending on where the ATM is located and which type of account they have, so make sure you’re aware of all these details before going through with anything.
