Google Pay is an easy and safe way to pay using your Metro Bank debit or credit card. Simply wake up your phone to make contactless payments in shops with your Android device or, for in-app purchases, look for the “Buy with Google Pay” button at checkout.
When you open an account with us you will be able to leave with your bank card, your app and Google Pay setup and ready to use. At Metro Bank it’s a seamless process.

Please note that this service will be temporarily suspended for Business debit card holders starting 4th December 2018. We are aiming to make these changes by the middle of next year (2019) – we’ll keep you updated. If you are using these services, we’re sorry for the inconvenience this may cause you
During this time, you will still be able to use your debit card for contactless payments and your accounts will continue to work as normal. For more information please contact us on 0345 08 08 508 or visit us in store 7 days a week.
Google Pay is already accepted wherever contactless payment is – just look out for the contactless or Google Pay logo.
For in app purchases, look for the “Buy with Google Pay” button at checkout. Tap it and follow the simple prompts to complete your payment.
No card details are stored on your device, instead we use a virtual account number to represent your account information - so your card details stay safe.
You can add your Metro Bank debit or credit cards to Google Pay in just a few simple steps.
What do you need to get Google Pay working?
To set up and use Google Pay you’ll need:
You’ll also need a Metro Bank account. All Personal and Business Metro Bank debit and credit cards are eligible for Google Pay.
For in store payments under £30, simply wake your device and hold it near the contactless reader (no need to open the app). Your device will beep or vibrate, and you’ll receive a confirmation on screen to show your payment was made.
For in store payments over £30, you may be asked for additional authentication (such as unlocking our device).
Payments will always be taken from the default card in your Google Pay wallet.
Look for one of these symbols at checkout:
Switch easily between different accounts. You can set a default card for automatic payment in your Wallet app. If you want to pay with a different card for a particular purchase just choose the one you want to pay with in your wallet app.
As soon as you make a purchase, you'll see a payment confirmation that shows you exactly where a given transaction happened, along with the merchant's name and number.
Just tap the card and tap the information button on screen. You’ll see the last 10 transactions made from your device.
Google Pay transactions will still appear on your credit and debit card statements
It’s safe and secure because when you shop at a retailer, Google Pay doesn’t send your actual credit or debit card number with your payment. Instead we use a virtual account number to represent your account information — so your card details stay safe.
If your device is ever lost or stolen you can easily find, lock, and delete your details from a device using Find My Device.
Google Pay is an easy, secure and private way to pay using your Android device in stores, within apps and on the web. Pair your device with your Metro Bank Credit or Debit Card to get started.
If you encounter any problems when adding cards to your device, Metro Bank are on hand to quickly resolve any issues. Call 0345 08 08 500 or just pop in to your nearest store and someone will help you.
You’ll need to follow these steps:
If, in some places, a refund can’t be paid directly back to the device on which the transaction was made, then the retailer can make the refund back to your plastic card instead. For this reason, always make sure you have your plastic card handy if you require a refund.
Depending on the return and refund policies of the store, it may take up to several days for the return transaction to appear on your credit or debit card statement.
While we hope that never happens, it's a good idea to enable the remote location access for your device in advance, in case you need to search for it. To enable the remote location access, so that you can remotely lock your device or do a factory reset, take these steps:
If your phone is lost or stolen, you can find, lock, or erase it using Android Device Manager. Since Google Pay doesn't store your card details on your phone, anyone who finds or steals your phone won't be able to access that information, even if it's unlocked.
Alternatively, you can call us on 0345 08 08 500 to suspend or remove your card from Google Pay.
