One of the most common questions I’ve received from readers is this: what is google pay and how to use it? Well, for those that aren’t familiar with Google’s services, let me start by explaining a little bit about Google Payments (formerly known as Google Pay) before we get into the actual payment itself, as well as its full range of features.
Google Pay can be used in three main ways; debit card (the one you’re reading this on), credit card, or using any other method of merchant payment (more on which below). All three are very easy to understand if you have some basic knowledge of how they work. So, without further ado, here’s our rundown regarding the best way to take advantage of this handy feature offered by the internet giant.
How Does Google Pay Works & How Do You Use It?
Google’s mobile app is what you’ll be looking at once you click out of your device to open up Google Pay. The only catch is that like many apps, Google Pay can only be used on Android devices running on OS version 8.0 or above. This is due to Google having a limited number of developers on their app platform, but I found it is best to do so even though it doesn’t seem to limit you to the specific OS version your device supports.
Once you sign in to your account, on the left menu bar, select “Google Pay” and then find a contact or two that you’d like to send payments to. After that, enter whatever payment information you’d like to add (you can edit it later if you wish) until you reach the last piece of data you’d like to include on the check. Next, tap on the green pad where you see your funds appear! A small confirmation message will appear. As long as you have the correct account ID, the money should show in your account’s balance on your phone.
What Makes Up an Advertised Payment
In order for Google to make a payment for something advertised through ads, you need to know exactly what the advert was all about, plus some additional facts on the advertisement’s creator. In addition, Google does require advertisers to provide a particular type for each ad, and not every advertiser has the exact same ad in different locations and time slots. If a billboard displays a poster of Coca-Cola, for example, you need to register for that campaign first, and then when a consumer sees that ad, they can’t see that poster because they don’t know it exists.
Payments From Other Mobile Apps & Apps On Your Phone
To complete the process of sending payments, you’ll need a valid Google account. Once that has been established, there are several steps you could take to receive your first Google ad. Firstly, go to https://account.google.com/signin/ and create a new account. Then, in order to receive your next payment from AdSense, open up that AdSense application on the web (or simply the Chrome extension, as they’re both free) and select “Send Money.” Alternatively, you can use the direct deposit option, which is free. Once your account and account details are established, tap on “Send Payment” and wait for the transaction to show up on the screen.
Getting Paid With Affiliate Links
Did you know that you can also receive commissions from websites like Amazon, eBay, or GQ by displaying affiliate links on your website? For example, I’m currently linking to an event sponsored by my blog, where I get paid by the company for promoting their products to bloggers who want to attend. The commission for this project is $5 for each person who comes to visit my site and gives me $50. When someone spends this amount, I get $5 via PayPal to put towards another project that was sponsored the same day. That total is $100, and I’m going to share how to get started in just a moment…
After your account has successfully been created, it should now show up on the list under “Gift Cards.” Under the “Featured Ads” section, choose Adsense from the drop-down menu, and then, click on the green ‘Submit’ button. Within seconds, it should display all of the ads you’ve got set up. Click the button located on the bottom right-hand side and voila! The uploaded files will show up in your folder.
At the end of your file, right-click on the name and address, and the file to where ever it was stored. Depending on the length of your post, you may already have at least 10 Adsense accounts set up on your site. Once you’re happy with the completed document and finished uploading, hit ‘Save to cloud storage.’ You’ll then get a notification for the future with a link to the Adsense dashboard, as well as receive updates on your blog.
