Brand guidelines

These guidelines help you implement Google Pay within your apps.

Google Pay payment buttons

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

All Google Pay payment buttons displayed on your site must adhere to our brand guidelines, which include, but aren't limited to the following:

  • Size relative to other similar buttons or elements of the page
  • Contrast with the background color of the area surrounding it
  • Clear space


Google Pay provides a PayButton API that lets you customize the Google Pay payment button theme, shape and corner roundness to match your UI design.

When you use the PayButton API, you get:

  • A button styled with the latest Google Pay branding.
  • Dynamic design that ensures ideal content proportions when button size changes.
  • Translation of the button’s caption into the language that’s set for the device.
  • Configurable corner radius to match your UI design.

Customizable payment buttons

If this convenience method or the supported languages don't suit your needs, contact us.


Google Pay payment buttons are available in two variations: dark and light. Each variation comes with and without the "Buy with" text. Payment buttons with localized versions of the "Buy with" text are provided, but the Google Pay brand is always untranslated. Don't create buttons with your own localized text.

Dark Light

Use dark buttons on light backgrounds to provide contrast.

Use light buttons on dark or colorful backgrounds.

Clear space

Always maintain the minimum clear space of 8 dp on all sides of the payment button. Ensure the clear space is never broken with graphics or text. This is a general design guideline, not a PayButton API specification.

Minimum width

The Google Pay button should have a minimum width of 90 dp. All "Buy with Google Pay" payment buttons should have a minimum width of 152 dp.

Display "Google Pay" in text next to the mark if you do so for other brands. Don't change the color or weight of the mark's outline or alter the mark in any way. Use only the mark provided by Google.

Clear space

Always maintain at least half (0.5x) of the height of the super G on all sides of the Google Pay acceptance mark. Make sure the clear space is even with any other brand identities that you display.

Adjust the height to match the other brand identities displayed in your payment flow. Don't make the Google Pay mark smaller than the other brand identities.

Dos and Don'ts

Do Don't
  • Use only the Google Pay mark provided by Google.
  • Use the Google Pay mark to indicate Google Pay as a payment option within payment flows.
  • Create your own mark or alter the Google Pay mark in any way.
  • Translate the word “Pay.”
  • Display the Google Pay mark in a different or smaller size than the other payment options.

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

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 for 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 before you give customers the option to select the Google Pay button. Such information might include:

  • The item's size, color, and quantity
  • The added gift message, if any
  • The promo code, if any
  • The preferred shipping speed
  • The destinations for individual items

If a customer doesn't provide any necessary information, offer real-time feedback to let them know what was missed before you bring up the payment sheet.

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

To speed up single-item checkout, let customers make individual purchases right from your product detail pages. If a customer chooses this option, be sure to exclude any other items that 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 you display 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 with Google Pay"
  • "Payment method: Google Pay"
  • "Paid with Google Pay"
