Add a card through your bank's website

You may see an option on your card-issuing bank's website to add a card to Google Wallet. To do so:

  1. Sign in to your account at your card-issuing bank’s website
  2. Click Add this card to Google Wallet
  3. Sign in to your Google Wallet account in the pop-up box.
  4. Your card-issuing bank may need access to your Google account to successfully add the card. You will be told what information your bank is requesting from your Google account. Please read the request carefully. If you choose not to grant your bank permission, your information will not be shared and your card will not be added.
  5. Your card will now be added to your Google Wallet account.

It's possible that your card issuer may decline the authorization we perform before adding your card. To ensure the privacy and security of your personal information, banks don't disclose details of credit card declines to third parties (like Google Wallet), so check with your bank for more details.
