Accepted payment methods

The first time you buy an item on the Google Store, you may be asked to add a payment method. You'll need to enter your name, address, phone number, and credit card details. This will add the payment method to your Google Account so you don't have to enter the information again when you make other purchases.

You can also add a payment method now, and it'll already be in place when you're ready to buy something.

You can use the following debit/credit cards:

  • American Express
