Fees, charges & authorizations

Use this page to learn about the fees, charges, and authorizations that may apply when using Google Payments.

Fees

There are no fees for making purchases on Google services like Google Play or Google Drive. You only pay for your purchases, applicable taxes, and delivery fees.

Charges

The Google service you made your order through will be the one to charge your account.

Charges appear on your statement as GOOGLE*Seller's name and usually show up on your statement within a few days of your order's placement.

Authorizations

When you check your bank account or card statement, you may see pending payment authorizations. These authorizations happen so Google can make sure the card is valid, and to check that you have enough funds in your account to make the purchase.

These are authorization requests, and not charges. You don't pay for authorizations.

Authorizations may stay in your account for 1-14 business days depending on your bank. If you still see the pending authorization after 14 business days, contact your bank for more information.
