Google Pay payment buttons

CDN for an HTML
<button> element. The "Buy with Google Pay" variation
automatically displays a translated button in a supported language that matches
the viewer's browser settings.
All Google Pay payment buttons displayed on your site must adhere to our brand guidelines, including, but not limited to, the following:
- Sizing relative to other similar buttons or elements of the page.
- Contrast with the background color of the surrounding area.
- Clear space.
If this convenience method or the supported languages don't suit your needs, contact us.
Google Pay payment buttons are available in two variations: black and white. Each variation comes with and without the "Buy with" text. Payment buttons with localized versions of the "Buy with" text are provided. The Google Pay brand is always untranslated. Don't create buttons with your own localized text.
Use black buttons on white or light backgrounds to provide contrast.
Use white buttons on dark or colorful backgrounds.

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. For more examples, see our Best practices guide.
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 and shipping address. 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...email@example.com with Google Pay";
- "Payment method: Google Pay" or "Paid with Google Pay."
The above screens represent a recommended Google Pay buy flow for a shopping cart experience.
When you display payment information on confirmation pages and email receipts, make sure you indicate that the customer has paid with Google Pay.
