Google Pay Direct

Google Pay™ provides a secure and seamless payment method that you can offer in-app, in store, and on the web. Google Pay uses network tokenization, stores payment information securely in the shopper's Google Pay eligible device, and confirms the payment through Touch ID or Face ID authentication. Google Pay is PSD2 SCA-compliant.

When the shopper selects Google Pay, they are presented with a payment sheet where they choose a card and provide contact details and shipping address. Then they are prompted to authenticate the payment through Face ID or Touch ID.
