Fees, charges & authorizations


There are no additional fees for using Google Wallet to shop with merchants. You only pay for your purchases, applicable taxes, and delivery fees.

Sellers, for both digital content and physical goods, determine the cost of the products they sell and any related shipping options, including fees, carrier company, and geographic restrictions. Please consult the seller directly if you have any questions or specific shipping requests.


The seller initiates the charge for your order. 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. To confirm the exact date your funding source was charged, review the order receipt from the Transactions page of your Wallet account.


When you check your bank account or card statement, payment authorizations are often listed as pending. These transactions may remain in your account between 1-14 business days, depending on your card-issuing bank. Please keep in mind they are authorization requests only, not actual charges.

You may also notice a $0.00 transaction from Google, which is actually a pending authorization request between our billing system and the bank that issued your credit or debit card each time you update a card.

In a small number of countries, authorizations are $1 (may be converted to local currency by your bank). These transactions may appear as pending on your statement for up to a month. We recommend you contact your bank on the authorization status.
