What happens if my phone is lost or stolen?

Android Device Manager ( www.google.com/android/devicem... ) will help you find, lock, and erase your phone. Also, you can simply search “Find my phone” and Google will show you where it is on a map. There’s no need to cancel your credit card.

What is the virtual account number and how do I find it?

Your credit and debit card information are assigned a unique virtual account number that’s used at checkout, so your full card details are never shared with the store. Think of it as a digital stand-in for your payment information. To view the last four or five digits of your virtual account number go to “Card details” or “Transaction details”.

When will I need my virtual account number?

You’ll need your virtual account number if you would like to make a return on an item purchased with Google Pay.

How do I return an item purchased with Google Pay?

In most instances, a return should work with Google Pay the same as it would if you had swiped a regular card. The key difference is that instead of the merchant having to swipe your card again you'll have to hold your phone near the payment terminal again to verify the return. Be sure to check that the Card selected in Google Pay is the one that you used for the original purchase. In some cases you may also be asked for the last few digits of your Card number. If this happens, you should provide the last few digits of your virtual account number. To view the last four or five digits of the virtual account number go to "Card details" or "Transaction details".

Check with your retailer before making the return, as some merchants will require your physical card to process the refund.
