Brand guidelines

These guidelines will help you implement Google Pay within your apps.

Google Pay payment buttons

The Google Pay payment button should always call the Google Pay API. The Google Pay API surfaces the payment sheet where users can select their payment method.

Google Pay in text

You may use text to indicate Google Pay as a payment option and to promote Google Pay in your marketing communication.

Capitalize the letters "G" and "P"

Always use an uppercase "G" and an uppercase "P" followed by lowercase letters. Don't capitalize the full name "GOOGLE PAY" unless it's to match the typographic style in your UI. Never use an uppercase "GOOGLE PAY" in your marketing communication.

Don't abbreviate Google Pay

Always write out the words "Google" and "Pay."

Match the style in your UI

Set "Google Pay" in the same font and typographic style as the rest of the text in your UI. Don't mimic Google's typographic style.

Don't translate Google Pay

Always write "Google Pay" in English. Don't translate it to another language.

Use the trademark symbol the first time "Google Pay" appears in marketing communication

When you use "Google Pay" in your marketing communication, show the trademark symbol, ™, the first or most prominent time that it appears. Don't use the trademark symbol to indicate Google Pay as a payment option in your UI.

If logos for other payment options aren't displayed, represent "Google Pay" with text.

Set "Google Pay" in the same font and typographic style as the rest of the text in your UI.

When you display payment information on confirmation pages and email receipts, make sure you indicate that the customer has paid with Google Pay.

Google Pay best practices

Maximize your conversions with checkout flows and payment sheets that let customers quickly and easily review their payment information and confirm their purchase.

The following are best practices:

Make Google Pay the primary payment option

People like using Google Pay for faster checkout. Where possible, display the Google Pay button prominently, and consider making it the default or only payment option.

Let your customers make purchases without an account

Account creation slows down the checkout process and can lead to abandoned carts. Use Google Pay to enable faster guest checkout. If you'd like your customers to create an account, allow them to do so after they complete their purchase.

Use Google Pay to initiate payment during cart checkout

The Google Pay button brings up the payment sheet. On the payment sheet, customers can only select and confirm a single payment method. Be sure to get all of the other information you need – such as an item's size, color, or quantity, the option to add a gift message or apply a promo code, or the ability to choose different shipping speeds and destinations for individual items – before you give customers the option to select the Google Pay button. If a customer doesn't provide any necessary information, offer real-time feedback to let them know what's missing before bringing up the payment sheet.

Add the Google Pay button to product detail pages in addition to cart checkout

Speed up single-item checkout by letting customers make individual purchases right from your product detail pages. If a customer chooses this option, be sure to exclude any other items they have in their shopping cart, since the payment sheet only lets them confirm their payment and shipping information.

Include Google Pay on confirmation pages and receipts

When displaying payment information on confirmation pages and email receipts, make sure you indicate the customer has paid with Google Pay and ensure that Google Pay is displayed consistently with how other payment methods are displayed. Never display full account numbers, expiration dates or other payment method details to the user. Always use the descriptive text returned by the Google Pay API to identify the payment method.

The following are a few examples:

  • "Network •••• 1234 with Google Pay"; "Network •••• 1234 (Google Pay)";
  • "Google Pay (Network •••• 1234)"; "Paypal abc...d@gmail.com with Google Pay";
  • "Payment method: Google Pay" or "Paid with Google Pay."

These screens represent a recommended Google Pay buy flow for a shopping cart experience.
