Can I use Google Pay at Target?
Google Pay is a payment system that allows you to add multiple credit cards and debit cards and then access them from your Android phone. You can use Google Pay to pay for items at stores, restaurants, or on the go. This app makes paying for things as easy as one click!
Yes, you can.
Yes, you can use Google Pay at Target.
That’s because the retailer has recently added support for mobile payments from Google Pay and Apple Pay. You can pay for products or services with any credit card, gift card, debit card, or rewards card linked to your account.
Here is how you can use Google Pay at Target stores.
If you want to make a mobile payment at Target, you must find a cashier’s terminal that accepts mobile payments. You can use Google Pay in any Target store and do not need to have a Target credit card to do so.
If the cashier’s terminal does not accept mobile payments, ask them if they can also get GPlay. In many cases, they will be able to add it to their registration through the register’s settings menu or by simply accessing their system remotely from another location where there is no need for physical infrastructures, such as registers with built-in NFC technology (such as at Amazon Go locations).
Go to any Target store.
If you’re looking to use Google Pay at Target, you can do so in multiple ways. To do so, head to any of the following:
- Your local Target store.
- The Target app.
- The Target website (target.com).
Find a cashier’s terminal that accepts mobile payments.
- Find a cashier’s terminal that accepts mobile payments. You can do this by looking for the GPlay logo or contactless symbol, as well as the NFC symbol.
- Ensure you are within the terminal range (usually within 2 inches). If you don’t see any of these symbols on your device, then it might not be compatible with our system at this time—please try again later!
- Hold your device close to the reader until prompted to enter your passcode or PIN code, which will be required before completing each transaction using Google Pay-enabled devices such as smartphones or smartwatches equipped with near-field communication (NFC) capabilities such as Apple Watch Series 4 or Samsung Gear S5 Smartwatch Edition (excepting Samsung Galaxy Watch Active models due to technical issues currently being resolved through software updates).
Hold your Android smartphone to the nearest terminal.
If you have a smartphone, this is the easiest way to use Google Pay. Just hold your device to the terminal. Next, ensure you’ve installed Google Pay on your phone and have a fingerprint or PIN set up. Then make sure you have a card loaded into Google Pay (you can buy one from here). If all of this is in place, hold your phone up to the card reader at checkout with the screen unlocked and tap “Pay.”
There are plenty of other ways to pay with Google Pay:
Google Pay will automatically launch and ask you to verify your identity with a fingerprint or PIN.
You can also use Google Pay at Target in a store. If you have used GPay before and verified your identity with a fingerprint or PIN, launch the app near the payment terminal and click “Verify Identity” to complete the transaction. If this is your first time using Google Pay for purchase at Target, follow these steps:
- Launch Google Pay from the home screen of your phone or tablet and tap “Get Started” (or enter an existing passcode). You’ll see “Tap Your Phone To Use It At The Register Now,” along with instructions on how to place it face up on top of the contactless reader pad. When prompted, lift your device, so it’s close enough for NFC (near-field communication) technology to work correctly. You’ll see a prompt asking if this device should be allowed to make payments using NFC technology—tap “OK” if you agree; otherwise, tap “No Thanks.”
Place your thumb or finger on the home button and press it slightly.
First, you will need to press the home button on your device. Second, you will need to push it with your thumb or finger.
Third, you will want to press it slightly.
