Google Pay is a digital wallet platform and online payment system developed by Google to power in-app, online, and in-person contactless purchases on mobile devices, enabling users to make payments in your app or website using any credit or debit card saved to their Google Account, including those from Google Play, YouTube, Chrome, or an Android device. Essentially, customers can use digital wallets to pay online with a saved card or a digital wallet balance.
Google Pay is now available as a payment option on top of Stripe as a payment gateway within the LearnWorlds platform.

The admin can enable this payment option within the Stripe setup. When this payment option is enabled, users from the respective devices/browsers can use it (applies both for the 1-click-sales-funnel and for the payments page).
1. Enable Google Pay as a payment method in your Stripe account. Navigate from your Stripe Dashboard to Settings → Payment methods and enable Google Pay.
2. From your admin's dashboard in your LearnWorlds school, click on Settings → Financial → Payment Gateway and enable Google Pay.
- Google Play appears only on the Android/Google browser and only if the user has set up their wallet.
Admins will only be able to preview the Google pay option only if they use the Android/Google browser and only if the user has set up their wallet.
Google Pay comes with specific guidelines for the theme of the distinct Buy button - which should be dark or light according to the background color around it as an element, as well as for the button size and the position of the button in the context of the environment it is being included.
We have already taken care of the button size and the position of the button in the Payment Zone, and as a default, we have preselected the dark theme for the Google Pay Buy button; yet in case you have selected dark colors on your payment zone/page, the light theme of the Buy button should be selected, so as for it to be clearly visible in the payment zone/page and for your school to comply with the guidelines from Google.
You can adjust the button theme based on the background color of your Payment Zone in the Site builder settings on your LearnWorlds school.
Dark buttons on light backgrounds provide contrast. Or use light buttons with an outline as an alternative to dark buttons on light backgrounds.
Light buttons on dark or colorful backgrounds.
You can check how this will appear if someone wishes to pay via Google Pay.
