Google Pay In-Store payments (second thread)

Hi,

I saw that you've closed my discussion on this thread: https://community.payoneer.com/en/discussion/comment/173400 but I am not convinced your answer is right.

You can see based on this link that Google Pay In-Store Payments work with debit and credit cards: https://support.google.com/pay/merchants/answer/6345242?hl=en .

Check the Tokenization part:
Tokenization works slightly differently when Google Pay is facilitating in-store or online payments. However, here’s basically how payments work:
- A Google Pay user adds a credit or debit card to their Google Pay app. Google Pay requests a token to represent the card they’re trying to add from the bank that issued that card. Once the token is issued, this card is now “tokenized,” meaning it has a unique identification number associated with it. Google Pay encrypts the newly tokenized card and it is ready to be used for payments.

So I am asking, again, when can we use Google Pay In-Store Payments with Payoneer cards?

Thanks,

    Hello,

    The linked article from Google's site says nothing about prepaid cards which is the issue. There is no doubt that they accept credit and debit cards, but a prepaid card is not the same as a standard credit or debit card that you get from your bank. We only provide prepaid cards. We know from experience that they don't accept prepaid cards as a payment method.

    You are more than welcome to ask Google yourself on their stance on prepaid cards, or take a deeper reading of the topic on their website.

    Thank you!

    :)
