Share this post

Monese, the globally-connected banking service, that gives
people the financial freedom to thrive anywhere, today brings its customers Google Pay in 11
further markets across Europe. Google Pay is the fast, simple way to pay in millions of places –
on sites, in apps, and in stores. It brings together everything you need at checkout and protects
your payment info with multiple layers of security. Plus, Google Pay makes it easy to manage
your cards, and get personalized suggestions to help you save time and money.

Monese customers living in Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy,
Norway, Poland, Sweden and Spain are able to use their Monese cards with Google Pay,
wherever Google Pay is accepted globally. Customers can switch between their Monese cards,
within Google Pay, as easily as they would do within the Monese app. Monese already provides
Google Pay to its customers in the UK.

Google Pay protects your payment info with multiple layers of security, using one of the world’s
most advanced security infrastructures to help keep your account safe.

Norris Koppel, CEO and Founder at Monese, says: “We are delighted to be offering one of the
fastest, simplest and more secure methods of payment to our Android customers across
Europe. Many of our customers travel the world for study, work, family, or retirement. We
know that these customers rely heavily on digital payments, including contactless payments.
We also know from speaking to our Android customers that there is a very strong appetite for
Google Pay across Europe.”

Google Pay is easy to set up and users will continue to receive all of the rewards and benefits
offered by Monese debit cards. Adding your Monese card to Google Pay takes just a few
moments. First, download the Google Pay app from Google Play. Then, sign in to your Google
Account and add a payment method. Customers will be able to add their Monese card to
Google Pay from within the Monese app in the coming weeks.

Over 1.3 million people have signed-up to Monese, with customer growth tripling in 2018, and
over 100,000 people now joining Monese every month. Demand for Monese across mainland
Europe surpassed that of the UK in November 2018, and in March 2019, two-thirds of all
sign-ups to Monese were in mainland Europe.

I didn't receive an e-mail

Tip: Check your spam

Sometimes our e-mails end up in spam. Make sure to check your spam folder for e-mails from The Payments Association

Tip: Check “other” tabs

Most modern e-mail clients now separate e-mails into different tabs. For example, Outlook has an “Other” tab, and Gmail has tabs for different types of e-mails, such as promotional.

Tip: Click the link within 60 minutes

For security reasons the link will expire after 60 minutes. Try submitting the login form again and wait a few seconds for the e-mail to arrive.

Tip: Only click once

The link will only work one time – once it’s been clicked, the link won’t log you in again. Instead, you’ll need to go back to the login screen and generate a new link.

Tip: Delete old login e-mails

Make sure you’re clicking the link on the most recent e-mail that’s been sent to you. We recommend deleting the e-mail once you’ve clicked the link.

Tip: Check your security policies

Some security systems will automatically click on links in e-mails to check for phishing, malware, viruses and other malicious threats. If these have been clicked, it won’t work when you try to click on the link.

Need to change your e-mail address?

For security reasons, e-mail address changes can only be complete by your Member Engagement Manager. Please contact the team directly for further help.
