25 May 2020

Google Pay is one of the easiest deposit methods for online betting if you have an android device. Similar to its counterpart Apple Pay, Google pay enables its users to do contactless payments in your local store, as well as online payments. In this article you will learn about how to use Google Pay at online betting sites and which bookmakers that accept Google Pay.

Google Pay betting sites

    Open Account Offer. Up to £100 in Bet Credits for new customers at bet365. Min deposit £5. Bet Credits available for use upon settlement of bets to value of qualifying deposit. Min odds, bet and payment method exclusions apply. Returns exclude Bet Credits stake. Time limits and T&Cs apply.

Why use Google Pay for online betting?

Google Pay acts as your debit/credit card would. Once you have added your card details to your Google Pay account on any android device, it is in essence a copy of your card that you can use for contactless payments or online payments.

Of course you cannot put your android in the card slot, but most shops accept contactless payments these days.

The main benefit of Google Pay is its simplicity. It is considered an e-wallet, and just like with Paypal, Skrill or Neteller, you do not need the card details with the bookmaker. But approving your transaction is much easier, since it just requires you to click accept, and not having to log in to your account.

The big drawback with Google Pay, as with Apple Pay, is that it is not possible to make withdrawals. Instead, you will have to make do with bank transactions.

Google Pay pros and cons for betting

PROS ✅

  • Instant deposits
  • You don’t have to share your card details
  • Very simple to use

CONS ❌

  • Not yet possible to withdraw with Google Pay

Google Pay for sign up offers

Normally, e-wallets are not valid deposit methods if you want to claim the welcome offer. The reason is that there has been a lot of bonus abuse, where syndicates have used e-wallets to transfer funds in between the accounts. This makes it harder to track the bonus abuse.

At the moment of writing this, only Bet365 allows deposits with Google Pay. However, according to their customer service, it should be possible to claim the sign up offer using Google Pay.

This is of course a massive advantage for Google Pay in relation to Skrill or Neteller, with which you cannot claim the welcome offer.

How to deposit money using Google Pay

You need an android phone, as Google Pay is only available on other devices in America. However, if you have set your Google Pay up with your debit card, the process of depositing is fairly straightforward.

  1. When asked to choose a payment method, choose Google Pay
  2. Enter the amount you would like to deposit.
  3. Approve the transaction with your Google Pay.

How to withdraw money using Google Pay

Google Pay does not accept withdrawals at this moment in time. In terms of the positives and negatives with the payment method, this is the biggest drawback.

Instead, all withdrawals from betting sites where you have used Google Pay for deposits have to be made through a bank transfer. Of course a very secure method, but in general a bit slower than other options.

What is Google Pay?

Google Pay was introduced in 2018 and combined the old Google Wallet with Android Pay. It enables users to make payment with Android devices, both in shops and online.

By adding your credit/debit card to Google Pay on your android device, you can easily use Google Pay to pay for any online transactions, including online gambling.
