Pay with Google Pay™
Google Pay is the new name for existing Google payment products, including Android Pay.
You can use Google Pay by linking your Santander debit or credit card to your Android™ device. This will allow you to make secure payments with a wide range of Android devices at any contactless terminal and in-app with certain merchants.
What do I need to start using Google Pay?
Making a payment
Your accounts are safe if you lose your device
If you lose your device there’s no need to cancel your debit or credit card/s as the details aren’t stored in the Android device. However you must either cancel your digital cards using Android Device Manager or call us on 0800 068 6698.
For lost and stolen cards, please call us on 0800 9 123 123. Lines are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you lose your cards, you can continue to use Google Pay while we arrange to replace your cards.
Santander Wallet – the easy way to manage your cards and spending

Yes. If you still want to carry your card you can use it to tap and pay with contactless whenever you want. Google Pay makes the Android phone your card and so if you want to use Google Pay you hold your device to the contactless reader instead.
Just take your phone along with your receipt and whatever you want the refund on. Shops will be able to refund any purchase made with Google Pay under the same conditions as they would a purchase made with a card or cash.
You can manage your Google Pay linked cards within your Android device
On your device, your cards and last 10 transactions can be seen in the app when you touch the card you used to pay.
You can change the default card within the app. To change this at any time touch and hold the card to be used as the default payment card, drag it up to the top of the card stack then release.
Yes, you can use Google Pay to pay for your journey but there are a few things to be aware of.
You need to use the same device to tap in and out of journeys so it’s important the battery on your device will last the journey. Using different devices or payment methods will result in being charged the maximum fare.
If you keep a contactless or Oyster card in your phone case, you should remove it before touching your Android phone on a yellow card reader. If you don’t, you could pay for your travel with a card you did not intend to pay with.
Not all transactions will appear immediately and in some cases may take a few days to be processed.
