Tap the “Ready to pay” button at the top of the screen or select “Pay contactless” to go to a page where you can enter payment information. The exact page shows the credit cards and other financial sources you’ve registered with G Pay. (Note that some readers may accept the electronic payment without you having to open the app.)

A new credit card can be added, as well as a PayPal account, by swiping across.

However, you will have to enable them to make payments contactless.

Go into the settings of the Google Pay app to monitor the security of your account. Choose Settings > Privacy & security > Data & personalization from your personal icon in the upper-right corner. Using this section, you can choose whether Google can share your information with third parties to market to them, share information about your creditworthiness, or whether other Google companies can share your information for marketing purposes.

Google Play also lets you decide how you authorize purchases and whether Google can access other information such as Gmail bills within the Privacy & Security pane.
