I can see my card in Google Pay but my transaction is declining – why would this be?

There can be several reasons why a transaction is declining. First, you should check for the following issues:

  • Is there a message “Verification Needed” below the card in the Google Pay wallet? If this message is displayed, you’ll need to complete the verification process by requesting a one-time verification code. You will not be able to use Google Pay until this is completed.
  • Is your Near Field Communications (NFC) switched off on your mobile device? If so, switch it on.
  • Check to make sure you have an internet connection
  • Make sure your card is activated, is not locked or cancelled
  • Check to see if your card has expired
  • Check to ensure you have sufficient funds
