How does Google Pay work?
- Choose the Google Pay option
After choosing Google Pay, you may be required to verify the payment using your phone's screen lock. The status of your order will then change to In Process, which means that it's being handled by one of our card processors. This usually takes a few seconds, but sometimes it may take a bit longer.If it does take longer, it's best to wait. Coinmama orders expire if they're not completed within 30 minutes, and you'll be able to see what the issue was once yours does. For more insight on transaction statuses and what they mean.
- Confirm your wallet
If you don't have 2FA enabled, head over to your email inbox, read the message carefully, and click the link in the wallet confirmation email if the information is correct.
Once you have confirmed your wallet, we usually send the coins within an hour, and you'll be able to see them as soon as the Blockchain has confirmed the transaction - this may take another 10 minutes or longer, depending on the amount of traffic on the Blockchain Network at the given time.
