Option 2: Verify by test deposit (takes 3 to 5 days)

After you add your bank account, Google Pay will make a small test deposit into your bank account within 3 to 5 business days.

  1. Log in to your online bank account. Look for a test deposit from Google. It should be labeled"GOOGLE TEST". Note the amount.
  2. Open Waze and tap Carpool
  3. Tap Settings
  4. Tap Payments
  5. Tap your Google Pay email address
  6. On the next screen, you should see a red banner that says "You haven't completed the verification process". Tap VERIFY NOW.
  7. On the next screen, you should see a drop down list. Tap it and select the exact amount from the list that matches the test deposit in your bank account, and then tap VERIFY.

Mind the decimal point! If the amount is 1.23, make sure the period goes between the 1 and the 2.

  1. Go back to Waze Carpool, and tap Settings
  2. Tap your Google Pay email address
  3. Scroll down and tap MANAGE PAYMENT METHODS
  4. On your bank account, Select Primary from the drop-down list
