How do I send myself money?

Answered by Tom Adger

To send money to yourself using Google Pay, follow these steps:

1. Open the Google Pay app on your mobile device. If you don’t have the app, download and install it from the Google Play Store or the App Store.

2. Once you have opened the app, you will be on the “Start a payment” page. Look for the option called “Self Transfer” and click on it. This option allows you to transfer money from one bank account to another, both of which are under your name.

3. On the next screen, you will need to select the bank accounts you want to use for the transfer. Choose the account from which you want to transfer the money under the “transfer money from” section. Then, select the account to which you want to transfer the money under the “transfer money to” section. Make sure both accounts are in your name.

4. After selecting the bank accounts, enter the amount of money you want to transfer to yourself. You may also add any notes or descriptions for your reference, although this step is optional.

5. Once you have entered the transfer amount and any additional notes, click on the “Proceed to Pay” button to continue.

6. Depending on the banks involved, you may be redirected to your bank’s website or app to authenticate the transaction. Follow the prompts provided by your bank to complete the transaction securely.

7. Once the transfer is successful, you will receive a confirmation message or notification from Google Pay. You can also check your bank statements or transaction history to verify the transfer.

It’s worth noting that some banks may charge fees for certain transactions, such as transferring money between accounts. Therefore, it’s recommended to check with your bank beforehand to understand any potential charges or limitations.

Using Google Pay, you can easily send money to yourself by selecting the “Self Transfer” option, choosing the bank accounts involved, entering the transfer amount, and completing the transaction through your bank’s authentication process.
