Verify your identity
For certain kinds of transactions using your Google payments profile, we might need to verify your identity using information such as your name, address or date of birth. You might also need to provide us with an image of your ID or proof of address.
If we ask you to verify your account, any pending transactions will be cancelled. Pending charges on your bank statement will disappear within 14 business days.
Why we might ask you to verify
- We saw a suspicious transaction in your payments centre.
- We need to verify the information associated with the account.
- We need a little more information to comply with EU law (for European customers only).
