Your credit and debit card information are assigned a unique virtual account number that’s used at checkout, so your full card details are never shared with the store. Think of it as a digital stand-in for your payment information. To view the last four or five digits of your virtual account number go to “Card details” or “Transaction details”.
In most instances, a return should work with Google Pay the same as it would if you had swiped a regular card. The key difference is that instead of the merchant having to swipe your card again you'll have to hold your phone near the payment terminal again to verify the return. Be sure to check that the Card selected in Google Pay is the one that you used for the original purchase. In some cases you may also be asked for the last few digits of your Card number. If this happens, you should provide the last few digits of your virtual account number. To view the last four or five digits of the virtual account number go to "Card details" or "Transaction details.”
Check with your retailer before making the return, as some merchants will require your physical card to process the refund.
If your physical card is lost or stolen, call us on 1300 688 825 so we can cancel and reissue your card. Once the card is cancelled it can no longer be used via Google Pay
