Got questions?

I'm having trouble adding a payment card.

Try the following: 

  1. Contact your bank or credit card company and ask them to whitelist charges from “Google Pay Services”
  2. Check whether the payment card has expired
  3. Make sure you have enough credit in your bank account to be charged
  4. Try using a new payment card issued for a different bank account – see "Update your payment card" above

Can I use my payment card on multiple Google Pay accounts?

You can't use the same payment card on more than one Google Pay account.

Tell me more about the price I pay for carpooling.

You can always find a ride's price in the Price breakdown screen before you choose to accept it.
