Payments center updates

What’s new?

Payments center has released a new user interface (UI) that brings together your Google Accounts in one location. You can access your personal (Google Pay), business, and merchant transactions from pay.google.com. The new UI will be rolled out to all merchants by August 2018.

If you’ve used your business or merchant Google Account to pay for a consumer product (e.g. an app or movie), or to send money to a friend using Google Pay Send, you can now see this activity from the Payments center.

To adjust who can view your account, review your settings.

Business vs merchant

There are a few key differences between a business and a merchant:

  • Business: If you're a business, you pay Google for products and services such as Ads, Cloud, etc. 
  • Merchant: If you're a merchant, you get paid by Google for apps, extensions, and services you provide. Google Play developers and Chrome Web Store developers are merchants.

What is Google Pay?

Google Pay is a service that brings all of your Google Accounts in one place, making it easier to pay with Google for your consumer purchases. Learn more about Google Pay.
