Can I pay with Apple Pay or Google Pay?

If you’ve enabled Apple Pay or Google Pay on your device, you’ll usually be able to use it to pay for a transfer with TransferWise. 
 

To pay for a transfer using Apple Pay or Google Pay

 

  1. Open the TransferWise Android app if using Google Pay, or open the iOS app or website on Safari if using Apple Pay
  2. Set up a transfer as you usually would
  3. Select the Apple Pay or Google Pay option at the payment step
  4. Follow the steps to confirm the payment


There are a few circumstances where you won’t be able to pay using either method. For example, for both Apple Pay and Google Pay, we can't accept bank cards issued in Japan. You can read about the restrictions for paying with Apple Pay and Google Pay below.
