Google Pay for Business quick start guide Set up

To accept payments through Google Pay, provide information about your business and integrate your technical platform. Use this implementation guide to set up Google Pay:

Step 1: Sign up for Google Pay for Business

Prerequisites: Your business must have a Unified Payments Interface ID (UPI ID). If it doesn’t have a UPI ID, contact your banking partner to get one.

To create a Google Pay for Business account, follow the steps below:

  1. Sign up for Google Pay for Business.
  2. Use the Google Account you’d like to use to accept payments for your business. If you don’t have a Google Account, create one.
    Note: If you want to create a Google Account with your existing email address instead of setting up a Gmail account, follow these steps.
  3. Follow the on-screen prompts to enter your business information into the form.
  4. Enter your Unified Payments Interface ID (UPI ID), also known as a virtual payment address (VPA). If you don’t already have a VPA, create one.

Step 2: Verify your bank account

After you provide your virtual payment address (VPA), Google deposits a small amount into the bank account linked to your VPA. To verify that the bank account belongs to you, follow these steps:

  1. Check the transactions in your bank account. Find the test amount from Google.
  2. In your Google Pay account, go to the Unified Payments Interface (UPI) verification screen.
  3. Enter the amount Google deposited in your bank account.

If the amount you enter matches the amount Google deposited into your bank account, you’ve verified your bank account successfully.

Step 3: Google Pay reviews your sign-up

The Google Pay team will review the information you provided when you signed up and will email you with either an approval / request for more information within 48 hours. To check the status of your application, sign in to your Google Pay for Business account

Step 4: Integrate Google Pay to your technical platform

You can let your customers choose to pay with Google Pay on your website or mobile app. Review the payment options below, and sign in to your Google Pay account and see the Developer section for more integration steps.

  • In-app: Customer uses Google Pay to pay in your app.
  • Unified payments interface (UPI) collect call: Customer buys from your desktop website. They pay by making a UPI collect call on their mobile device through the Google Pay app.
  • Chrome web payment: Customer uses the Google Chrome browser to buy from your desktop website. They use the Google Pay mobile app to pay through a payment gateway. 

Step 5: Test and start using Google Pay

Its recommended that you test your integration before you let customers know they can use Google Pay to pay you. This testing ensures that your customers have a great experience. To test your integration, host a low value product on your site (max ₹5) so our support agents can make an actual purchase and then cancel afterwards. You can take out the product once the testing is done.

To promote Google Pay to your customers, use approved Google Pay creative assets and guidelines.
