Google Pay

Google PayTM brings you a simple and secure way to pay in apps and in stores.

Choose your device, add your RGCU cards, and you’re all set. With Google Pay, you will still enjoy all of the great benefits of your RGCU card—minus the wallet or purse.


No wallet? No worry! Use your Android Device1 at over a million stores and in apps in three easy steps:

1. Tap

Making a payment in the store? No need to open an app. Unlock your device and hold near the contactless terminal.

2. Pay

A subtle vibration will alert you that the payment has been transmitted.

3. Done

That’s it! You’ll receive a payment confirmation including the date, time and amount of the transaction.

When making purchases online, you’ll never have to enter your shipping and billing information for online checkout again. Just select “Buy with Google Pay” for a fast, easy and secure payment.


With Google Pay you will never have to share your actual credit card number with a merchant again. A virtual account number is provided to represent your actual account information — this way your RGCU card number will remain safe.
