Payment limits and security
Google Pay is a Free mobile payment service available to all Transcash customers (except ACCESS customers without declared identity*).
Payment limits: Google Pay does not give a limit per transaction. It is therefore your Transcash card that is used to determine the limit. You can spend within the transaction limits of your package. Google Pay offers strong authentication that protects your data from the risk of piracy, so it is normal to be able to pay a higher amount than with the simple ‘contactless’ method.
Security: Google Pay has implemented several levels of security to protect your data, using some of the most advanced technology available. A virtual account number is assigned to your payment method so that your card details are never disclosed. This virtual number will be useful if you need to return an item purchased with Google Pay.
If you lose your phone, don’t panic: payments are not possible without biometric authentication (fingerprint, facial recognition or unique code). In addition, you can remotely lock your phone via the ‘Locate my device’ application. We also advise you to block the card or stop payment.
