Google Pay FAQs


How does the Google Pay™ app work?

Google Pay™ is a free app that allows you to pay with your Community First Credit Union card with a tap of your phone while enjoying the same benefits and protection of your physical card. Add an eligible credit card and you’re ready to tap and pay for purchases. Use Google Pay™ in participating mobile apps and anywhere contactless payments are accepted.

Is using my Community First Credit Union card in the Google Pay app safe?

Yes. Google Pay has a number of security features:

  • Your physical card number is not stored on your phone
  • Just like a contactless transaction with your Community First Credit Union card, Google Pay will not work for purchases over $100 unless you enter your PIN at the terminal
  • If your phone is ever lost or stolen, you can use Android Device Manager to instantly lock your device, or even wipe it clean of any personal information
  • You will continue to enjoy $0 liability for unauthorised transactions the same as when using your physical card
How do I get the Google Pay app?

You can get the Google Pay app from Google Play for free if you have:

  • An Android Pay compatible smartphone with NFC technology that lets your phone transmit data to the payment terminal at checkout
  • Android Lollipop 5.1 or above operating system
