How do I pay with Google Pay?
To use Google Pay to pay for a WorldRemit money transfer, simply choose Google Pay as your payment method when you come to pay. If you don't already have a payment card set-up in your Google Pay Wallet, you will be prompted to complete set-up before using this option.
Is there a limit to how much you can pay with Google Pay?
There are no limits to a Google Pay transaction, but there are limits to the amount you can send with WorldRemit, depending on the country you are sending to.
Is Google Pay secure?
Yes. Your full card details are never stored on your phone and Google does not share your full card details with any merchant; WorldRemit will only see an encrypted version.
Is Google Pay the same as Android Pay?
No. Google Pay is a merger of Android Pay with the Google Wallet and takes the best features of both.
Can I pay by Google Pay in the country I am sending from?
WorldRemit can accept Google Pay as a way to pay for money transfers in the countries listed below. If you’d like more information on this, including the maximum amounts you can send, please click on the country you live in.
What should I do if my Google Pay payment is declined?
We won’t know why your Google Pay payment is declined. We wouldn’t have access to that information. And so the best thing to do is contact your card provider’s payment or authorisation department. They should be able to give you more information.
Will I be charged for paying with Google Pay?
There are never any hidden or extra fees when using WorldRemit. The total you need to pay is outlined when you create a transaction.
However, depending on the card issuer you use – they may charge you to make a Google Pay payment. But the charges are never made by WorldRemit.
Can I pay using someone else’s Google Pay account?
No. The money you send as a transfer must come from your own Google Pay account. That’s because as a financially regulated company, we need to ensure that we know the identity of our customers – and this includes the source of the funds they pay with.
In some circumstances we can accept payments from business accounts. We may, however, need to see official documentation that shows you have authority to make payments from these accounts before we’ll be able to release your transaction. If this is the case, we will contact you by email or phone to discuss this with you. You must also use your own cards when paying by Google Pay.
How long does a Google Pay refund take?
If you decide to cancel a money transfer made with a Google Pay payment, you can expect your refund to be credited within 2 - 3 working days. However, it may vary depending on your card provider. So it’s well worth checking with your bank exactly how long it will take.
