Permanently end your Google Pay service
You can permanently end your Google Pay service. Once you end the Google Pay service associated with your Google Account, you can’t re-open it.

- Buy things from Google Play, AdWords, or other Google products.
- Use Google Pay to make purchases.
- Send or request money.
- Store gift cards, loyalty programs, and payment info.
