How to Install Contactless Payment on Phone

You’ve already set up the Google Pay app and added a card to it, but still can’t pay with your phone? Follow the steps below.

Step 1. Make sure your phone software meets all the requirements.

  1. Check if your device has Play Protection certification.
  2. If you have modified your phone, make sure it meets security standards. Google Pay will not work if:
    • The device has an Android version for developers;
    • You have configured root access on your phone, installed modified firmware, or changed the factory settings;
    • Samsung MyKnox is installed on the device;
    • The device has not been tested and approved by Google
    • You unlocked the bootloader on your phone.

    Most of these problems can be resolved by restoring the device to factory settings. However, if the phone is not certified by Play Protection or has root access configured on it, then resetting the settings will not help.

    Step 2. Determine if NFC technology is supported and enable it

    Open your device’s settings.

    Select Connected devices.

    If there is no such option, see if there is one of the following sections: “Wireless networks”, “Connections” or “Nfc”. If necessary, click Yet.

    Note. The procedure may vary depending on the device model and version of the Android OS. If the instructions do not suit you, visit the help center of the manufacturer.

    Note. This list is not complete. If your device is not here, check if NFC is supported on it manually.
