The following guidelines show how to include the Google Pay brand within your websites.

Use the following Google Pay mark when you show Google Pay as a payment option:
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.
Always maintain at least half (0.5x) of the height of the capital 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 other brand identities.
Dos and Don'ts
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 on your website. 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 on your website
- Set "Google Pay" in the same font and typographic style as the rest of the text on your website. Don't mimic Google's typographic style.
- Don't translate Google Pay
- Always write "Google Pay" in English. Don't translate it into 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 when you list Google Pay as a payment option on your website.
|If you don't display brand identities for other payment options, then represent "Google Pay" with text.||Set “Google Pay” in the same font and typographic style as the rest of the text on your site.|
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.
- Wherever possible, display the Google Pay button prominently. You can also make it the default option, or the 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 the other information that you need before you give customers the option to select the Google Pay button. Other information can include the following:
- An item's size, color, or quantity.
- The option to add a gift message or apply a promo code.
- The ability to choose different shipping speeds and destinations for individual items.
- If a customer doesn't provide the necessary information, offer real-time feedback to let them know what you need before they can bring up the payment sheet.
- Add the Google Pay button to the product detail pages in addition to the cart checkout
- You can speed up single-item checkout if you let 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 because 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 that the customer has paid with Google Pay, and that you display Google Pay in the same manner as other payment methods.
- 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 examples of acceptable descriptive text:
- "Network •••• 1234 with Google Pay"
- "Network •••• 1234 (Google Pay)"
- "Google Pay (Network •••• 1234)"
- "Paypal abc...firstname.lastname@example.org with Google Pay"
- "Payment method: Google Pay"
- "Paid with Google Pay"
