You can use your phone to make quick, easy payments in stores. You don’t need to carry around cash or a credit card—bring your phone, and you’re good to go!
- In-store purchases: It’s handy when buying groceries or other items already on sale. Give the cashier your phone, and they’ll scan it with their scanner. The transaction is completed in seconds.
- Restaurant visits: When dining out at a restaurant, tell the waiter/waitress that you want to pay using Apple Pay (or whatever payment method you’ve set up). They’ll ask for security information from your device, including a thumbprint scan or facial recognition software (depending on what kind of phone you have). Then they’ll verify that everything matches up before submitting everything through their point-of-sale (POS) system. Once approved by both parties, payment has been made!
Using Google Pay is easy.
To use Google Pay, you’ll need to download the app from the Play Store and set up a PIN or fingerprint. Then, since it’s linked to your account, you can use Google Pay no matter your phone or tablet — whether it’s an iPhone, Android device, or Chromebook laptop.
Google Pay is also easy to use in apps and online shopping sites on desktop computers. And if you’re running low on cash at a store? You can pay with Google Pay just by tapping your phone against any terminal that accepts NFC payments — no need for cash or cards!
Get ready to pay.
You’ll need to be ready to pay with your phone. Here are the steps:
- Unlock your screen.
- Ensure that your device is unlocked and facing up (or in the proper position).
- Hold your phone near the terminal with both hands until it vibrates and shows “Confirm” on the screen—and then place it down on top of an NFC-enabled payment terminal at a store, restaurant, or other location that accepts mobile payments. The transaction will complete after you hear three short beeps (one long beep followed by two short beeps) as confirmation.
Your device must be unlocked, and the screen must be on.
When you’re ready to play with your phone, you’ll first want to make sure your device is unlocked. Your phone should not be locked in a way that requires a passcode or pattern to open it. In addition to unlocking your device, the screen must be on and visible so that the cashier can swipe their device over yours.
Hold your device above the terminal until you see a blue check mark.
- Hold your device above the terminal until you see a blue check mark.
- If you don’t see a blue check mark, try again.
The store will show confirmation on their payment terminal display.
Once you’ve ordered payment, the store will show confirmation on their payment terminal display. On your phone, you will see a blue checkmark on the upper left corner of the screen to indicate that your payment has been made successfully. Then, the store will print and give you a receipt for your purchase.
Mobile payment makes it easy to pay for physical items in stores.
Mobile payment makes it easy to pay for physical items in stores. It is convenient, secure, and can be used anywhere that accepts mobile payments. There are various ways to make mobile payments; the most common method is with an app on your phone that allows you to connect your credit or debit card to it. You then can pay using stored value or the balance from another card or service like PayPal or Venmo.
To use this payment method at a store, tell the cashier what item(s) you want and scan them into their system (or hand them over). Once they watch everything you’ve purchased, enter your PIN code into their machine, and voila! Your transaction will be complete! Mobile payment works just like any other form of credit card payment, except there aren’t any magnetic strips involved—the information about what items were purchased is transmitted directly from their register back up through their network out into space, where satellites receive it before sending back down again so you can receive confirmation that everything went smoothly rather than having someone come by periodically throughout each day checking if anyone had tried taking money out without permission (which would throw off our whole banking system).
As you can see, Google Pay makes paying for physical items in stores easy. It’s convenient, secure, and saves time. If you have been considering using Apple Pay or Samsung Pay, now is the time to try it out! You can also use Google Pay online if you want to check out an item on a website without entering your payment information or creating an account first.
