Google Pay Betting Sites in Ireland in 2023

In this brief guide, we will cover the betting sites that accept Google Pay, and explain what this payment method is and what its features are. Unfortunately, at the moment there are only two Google Pay bookies in Ireland, but hopefully more will adopt it in the future.

What is Google Pay

Google Pay is a digital wallet platform and online payment system developed by Google to power contactless payments and in-app purchases. Users set up a Google Pay account via the Android/iOS app. They can then add payment methods like credit/debit cards, bank accounts, or promotional gift cards.

Where Google Pay is really good is with in-person contactless payments using NFC technology. When making a physical purchase, users simply unlock their Android phone and hold it near the payment terminal to authenticate and instantly complete the payment. This makes Google Pay incredibly convenient for quick in-store transactions.

Google Pay can also be used for in-app or online purchases, though this is not its primary focus. At supported merchants and betting sites that accept Google Pay, users can select it at checkout on desktop/mobile to pay directly from their saved payment methods. This makes Google Pay a useful option for punters looking to deposit into bookmakers.

Pros & Cons of using Google Pay

Google Pay is an e-wallet that seems appealing at first glance. However, upon closer inspection, there are both advantages and disadvantages to using it for the transactions at Google Pay bookmakers.

On the plus side, Google Pay provides a smooth payment interface for Android mobile bettors. By storing your card details with Google, you avoid having to manually enter them each time you make a deposit. Google Pay also enables fast deposits, allowing you to get funds into your betting account within minutes. Moreover, transactions are secure thanks to Google’s encryption technology.

However, there is one notable downside — withdrawals can take up to 5 business days to reach your bank account. This lengthy withdrawal time negates one of the main advantages of e-wallets, which is quick access to winnings.
