Contactless payments have become an increasingly convenient, fast, and secure way to pay for life’s necessities and those extras that make your day-to-day a little bit sweeter. As we continue giving you more ways to access your money, we’re happy to announce that Google Pay is now available to all N26 customers in the U.S.
What is Google Pay?
Google Pay is a safe, easy, and quick way to pay online, in-app, and at millions of stores worldwide with your Android phone and your N26 account.
Google Pay makes it easier for you to use your money however you want, without having to use your physical debit card. To use Google Pay to pay in stores, just look around for the NFC terminal when you’re shopping, hold your phone to it, and you’re done.
How do I add my N26 card to Google Pay?
Getting started with Google Pay is fast and easy. Google Pay comes preloaded on many devices already. If yours doesn’t have it, just head to the Play store, and download Google Pay. From there, just tap on “+ payment method,” enter your card details, verify via text message code, and start using.
How secure is Google Pay?
When you attach your N26 card to Google Pay, your details are protected by multiple layers of security.
Google Pay doesn’t send your debit card number with your payment. Instead, it sends an alternate number or “token” and keeps your card details safe. Additionally, you can’t make payments totaling more than $50 without unlocking your phone. This means that your personal details are safe if you misplace your phone.
Both N26 and Google Pay put security first. If you’re looking to add another layer of security on top of this built-in technology, you can always add a PIN to Google Pay for extra peace of mind. Just open the app, go to the Security section under Settings and toggle on Require PIN.
Are you new to N26? Open an account in 5 minutes right from your phone, and enjoy fast and secure contactless payments in-app, online, or at millions of physical locations with Google Pay.
