Manage a subscription with Google Pay
Your customers will see that their subscription payment is associated with Google Pay when they look at the billing information in their customer portal.
Note: If a customer changes their billing details in their Google Wallet, it will not have any impact on their Recharge recurring billing. Recharge will continue to charge the original card associated with Google Pay during their initial checkout. To update their billing information, customers will need to switch to a different credit card via their Recharge customer portal.
Add discounts at checkout
The Google Pay interface does not have an area for inputting discount codes. To enter a discount code, the customer will need to add the discount code in the Order Summary section of the checkout before selecting the Google Pay option.
