Common questions about app or website payments

If you have a question about your order, contact the merchant directly.

I want to get a refund for an order

To request a refund, contact the merchant directly.

I find GOOGLE *TEMPORARY HOLD in my bank or credit card app. What’s this?

When you use a payment method through a Google service, you may find a charge on your account with the descriptor GOOGLE *TEMPORARY HOLD. This is a pending charge performed to verify that your card account is valid. When the transaction goes through, the hold will go away.

My payment didn’t go through. What can I do?

  1. Check if the merchant accepts your payment method.
  2. Make sure there are no issues with your account. Check for any Alerts Alert.
  3. Make sure that the information that your bank or credit card company has matches the name and address in your Payment profile settings.
  4. If your billing information matches, try the transaction again with another payment method. Learn how to manage your Google payment info.
  5. If you only have one payment method available, try to remove the payment method from your Google Account and add it back again. Then, try the transaction again. Learn how to manage payment methods.
  6. If none of the above have worked, to find out why the transaction was declined, contact your bank or credit card company.
