How to Add Payment Card and Method in Chrome Android

Learn how to add a payment method and card details in Chrome Android. You can add new card info. However, editing or deleting is available in Google Payment.

We can store and manage the card information in the Chrome browser for Android, which allows us to make quick payments on the payment gateway site. The stored card information is automatically retrieved and used, which avoids the hassle of manually entering it. The saved card is stored with the highest security and can be used only after our authentication.

Add and Manage Payments for Autofill on Chrome browser

Google Payments or Google Pay is linked with your Google account and helps you purchase in the Google Play Store or Movies and Books store. Payments also help make recurring purchases of Google Workspace and Play Music or YouTube subscription music.

In the Chrome app for Android, the Payment method will work like an auto-fill that helps insert the card details on the merchant payments page.

For example, during cart checkout on Amazon or eBay, you can allow Google Payments to auto-fill the card details already stored in the Google account. However, it will first request and validate the CVV number to auto-fill details. This will help to avoid memorizing your card number and protect you from unauthorized transactions.

Though you may ask if saving the card details in Chrome is safe. I save the credit card details on Chrome and haven’t faced any issues. It helps save a lot of time and energy. Moreover, I do not have to remember any card details.

As I mentioned, the card won’t process any transaction until you verify the CVV number on the merch site.

Add Payment Card Details

You can add multiple cards as payment methods and choose the appropriate one while making the transaction. The card information is stored within the Google payments portal and synced across devices. The payment methods feature in Chrome browser lets you access this as per your need.

Here are simple steps to add a new payment card:

  1. Launch Google Chrome for Android.
  2. Tap on the More vertical 3dots icon menu for options.
  3. Select Settings from the options list.
  4. Tap on the Payments tab.
  5. Select the Add card command on the Payments page.
  6. Enter the Card details along with the billing address.

The new card will be valid only after authorization with a one-time password (OTP). Google may also deduct a few cents and reverse the amount in a day or two to validate the payment method.

View Saved Payment Method

If you want to view, edit, or delete existing payment method details, you can do so from the online channel. You can only view the saved card details’ last four digits within the Chrome browser.

Here are the steps to view saved payment details:

  1. Launch the Google Chrome app for Android.

  3. Select Settings from the options list.
  4. Tap on the Payments tab.

You can edit the payment details on the details page, which will take you to the Google Payments page. After validating, you can either edit or delete the Payment card details.

You can also view Payments Apps like Google Pay from the Payments tab on Chrome Android. This may differ for every country and may not be available for most.
