Turn Google Pay on or off for users

As an administrator of your organization's Google accounts, you can control who uses Google Pay. Just turn the service on or off for those users in your Admin console. Users who have Google Pay turned on can use it for purchases on the web or through the GPay mobile app. When you turn off Google Pay for users, they cannot use it to make purchases and any existing subscriptions will be cancelled. The Google Pay toggle applies to services, like YouTube, that use Google Pay as their billing system. It does not apply to some business services that use billing systems that are not branded as Google Pay.
