What is a payments profile?

Your payments profile is usually created automatically the first time you buy something from Google (like digital content on Play or storage space through Google One).

Your Google payments profile stores information like:

  • Name, address, and tax ID (when required legally) of who is responsible for the profile
  • Credit cards, debit cards, bank accounts, and other payment methods you’ve used to buy through Google in the past
  • Receipts and other information about past transactions
  • Subscriptions and recurring payments
  • People you invited to use your profile (Note: This feature no longer exists for individual accounts.)
