Why some cards can't be added in the app to pay in stores

Your bank decides if its cards will work with Google Pay. Banks may restrict certain or all of its cards from making mobile payments.

If your bank isn't listed or your card can't be set up for mobile payments, call the phone number on the back of your card to offer your bank feedback.
