Does Amazon accept Google Pay
No, Amazon doesn’t accept Google Pay. According to the official payment method page by Amazon, it does not support Google Pay to make direct payments for goods and services.
Only Amazon India accepts Google Pay as a direct method for making payments. It is because, in India, Google Pay supports BHIM UPI and can be used to make transactions directly from a user’s linked account.
And if you are an Indian user, you can select Google Pay or Gpay as a payment method while checking out. You will receive a notification on your Google Pay app. Enter the password for your UPI, and that’s it.
Yep, bank transfers are straightforward in India using UPI. But, unfortunately, no such feature is available for the citizens of the USA.
Google Pay works as a digital wallet in the USA. And Amazon considers Gpay as its competitor. Apple Pay would have met the same fate. But, it has a got a significant users base than Google Pay. That’s why you do not see Google Pay as a payment method in Amazon and its associated apps.
And we cannot confirm if you will be able to pay using your Google Pay on Amazon in the near future.
As of January 2022, Amazon accepts credit and debit cards as payment methods. All major credit cards – Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express, Diners Club, and JCB can be used as payment methods on Amazon.
Well, you might not pay using Google Pay directly on Amazon. But, there is a workaround method that can be used if you do not have any other method to make the payment.
And here in this post, we will be talking about the one workaround. Don’t worry. It is totally legal but a little indirect method. It is worth trying if you do not have anything else to proceed with.
