The Card is not connected in any way to any other account. The Card is not a credit card. The Card is not for resale. You will not receive any interest on your funds in the Card Account. The Card will remain the property of the Issuer and must be surrendered upon demand. The Card is nontransferable and it may be canceled, repossessed, or revoked at any time without prior notice subject to applicable law. The Card is not designed for business use, and we may close your Card if we determine that it is being used for business purposes. We may refuse to process any transaction that we believe may violate the terms of this Agreement.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PROCEDURES FOR OPENING A NEW CARD ACCOUNT To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens a Card Account. What this means for you: When you open a Card Account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see a copy of your driver’s license or other identifying documents.
You will be able to set a Personal Identification Number (“PIN”) using the Google Wallet application. You should not write or keep your PIN with your Card. Never share your PIN with anyone. When entering your PIN, be sure it cannot be observed by others and do not enter your PIN into any terminal that appears to be modified or suspicious. If you believe that anyone has gained unauthorized access to your PIN, you should advise us immediately following the procedures in the paragraph labeled “Your Liability for Unauthorized Transfers.”
You are responsible for all authorized transactions initiated and fees incurred by use of your Card. If you permit another person to have access to your Card or Card number, we will treat this as if you have authorized such use and you will be liable for all transactions and fees incurred by those persons. You are wholly responsible for the use of each Card according to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
You may not request an additional Card for another person.
By activating the Card or by retaining, using or authorizing the use of the Card, you represent and warrant to us that: (i) you are at least 18 years of age (or older if you reside in a state where the majority age is older); (ii) you are a U.S. citizen or legal alien residing in the United States or the District of Columbia; (iii) you have provided us with a verifiable U.S. street address (not a P.O. Box); (iv) the personal information that you provide to us in connection with the Card is true, correct and complete; (v) you received a copy of this Agreement and agree to be bound by and to comply with its terms; and (vi) you accept the Card.
With your PIN, you may use your Card to obtain cash from any Automated Teller Machine (“ATM”) or any Point-of-Sale (“POS”) device, as permissible by a merchant that bears the MasterCard® or STAR® Acceptance Mark. All ATM, POS cash back and funds withdrawn through a participating bank (over the counter withdrawal) transactions are treated as cash withdrawal transactions. The maximum cumulative cash access amount that may be withdrawn per rolling 24-hour period is $300.00.
Funds may be added to your Google Wallet Balance by means of (i) a transfer of funds you initiate from a Funding Account, (ii) funds received from a Sender; and/or (iii) a credit issued to you in accordance with the terms of the Google Wallet Balance Customer Service and Error Resolution Policy, or (iv) as a courtesy by GPC or Google. See the Google Payments Terms of Service for additional details including when funds added to the Google Wallet Balance will be available.
The maximum amount that can be spent on your Card per rolling 24-hour period is $5,000. See the Google Payments Terms of Service for additional spending limitations in connection with the Google Wallet.
You may use your Card to purchase or lease goods or services in the United States and District of Columbia everywhere Debit MasterCard and STAR cards are accepted as long as you do not exceed the value available on your Card Account. The Card may not be used outside of the United States and District of Columbia, including Internet and mail or telephone order merchants outside of the U.S. and District of Columbia. Some merchants do not allow cardholders to conduct split transactions where you would use the Card as partial payment for goods and services and pay the remainder of the balance with another form of legal tender. If you wish to conduct a split transaction and it is permitted by the merchant, you must tell the merchant to charge only the exact amount of funds available on the Card to the Card. You must then arrange to pay the difference using another payment method. Some merchants may require payment for the remaining balance in cash. If you fail to inform the merchant that you would like to complete a split transaction prior to swiping your Card, your Card is likely to be declined.
If you use your Card at an automated fuel dispenser (“pay at the pump”), the transaction may be preauthorized for an amount up to $100.00 or more. If your Card is declined, even though you have sufficient funds available, pay for your purchase inside with the cashier. If you use your Card at a restaurant, a hotel, for a car rental purchase, or for similar purchases, the transaction may be preauthorized for the purchase amount plus up to 20% or more to ensure there are sufficient funds available to cover tips or incidental expenses incurred. Any preauthorization amount will place a “hold” on your available funds until the merchant sends us the final payment amount of your purchase. Once the final payment amount is received, the preauthorization amount on hold will be removed. It may take up to seven (7) days for the hold to be removed. During the hold period, you will not have access to the preauthorized amount.
If you use your Card number without presenting your Card (such as for a mail order, telephone, or Internet purchase), the legal effect will be the same as if you used the Card itself. For security reasons, we may limit the amount or number of transactions you can make on your Card. Your Card cannot be redeemed for cash. You may not use your Card for online gambling or any illegal transaction.
Each time you use your Card, you authorize GPC to reduce the value available in your Card Account by the amount of the transaction and any applicable fees. You are not allowed to exceed the available amount in your Card Account through an individual transaction or a series of transactions. See the Google Payments Terms of Service for your responsibility for transactions which exceed the available Google Wallet Balance.
You can prevent future transactions from your Card by locking it with the Google Wallet mobile application’s “Lock Card” feature. Use of this feature will not prevent processing of pending transactions initiated prior to locking your Card. A Card will only be considered “locked” once a properly functioning Google Wallet mobile application has provided confirmation that the Card has been locked. Similarly, a “locked” Card cannot be used for transactions until you have selected the Google Wallet mobile application’s “Unlock Card” option and a properly functioning Google Wallet mobile application has provided confirmation that the Card has been unlocked. You are responsible for preventing unauthorized locking and unlocking activity on your device relating to your Card. Such activity, when performed by an unauthorized person, may be deemed invalid in GPC’s or Google’s sole discretion.
If you are entitled to a refund for any reason for goods or services obtained with your Card, you agree to accept credits to your Card for such refunds and agree to the refund policy of that merchant. The Issuer or GPC is not responsible for the delivery, quality, safety, legality or any other aspects of goods or services that you purchase from others with a Card. All such disputes must be addressed and handled directly with the merchant from whom those goods or services were provided.
If you need to replace your Card for any reason, please contact us at 1-855-492-5538 to request a replacement Card. You will be required to provide personal information which may include your Card number, full name, transaction history, copies of accepted identification, etc.
Your Card may only be used within the fifty (50) U.S. states and the District of Columbia.
You should get a receipt at the time you make a transaction using your Card. You agree to retain, verify, and reconcile your transactions and receipts.
You are responsible for keeping track of your Card Account available balance. Merchants generally will not be able to determine your available balance. It’s important to know your available balance before making any transaction. You may obtain information about your Google Wallet Balance by calling 1-855-492-5538. This information, along with a sixty (60) day history of Card Account transactions, is also available online at wallet.google.com. You will not automatically receive paper statements.
All fee amounts will be withdrawn from your Card Account and will be assessed as long as there is a remaining balance on your Card Account, except where prohibited by law. NOTE: Fees assessed to your Card Account balance may bring your Card Account negative. Any time your Card Account balance is less than the fee amount being assessed on your Card Account, the balance of your Card Account will be applied to the fee amount. THIS WILL RESULT IN A NEGATIVE BALANCE ON YOUR CARD ACCOUNT. If that occurs, any subsequent deposits or loads into your Card Account will first be applied to the negative balance.

If you use an ATM not owned by us for any transaction, including a balance inquiry, you may be charged a fee by the ATM operator even if you do not complete a withdrawal. This ATM fee is a third party fee amount assessed by the individual ATM operator only and is not assessed by us. This ATM fee amount will be charged to your Card.
We may disclose information to third parties about your Card or the transactions you make:
If we do not properly complete a transaction from your Card on time or in the correct amount according to our Agreement with you, we will be liable for your losses or damages. However, there are some exceptions. We will not be liable, for instance:
Contact us at once if you believe your Card has been lost or stolen. Telephoning is the best way to minimize your possible losses. If you believe your Card has been lost or stolen, or that someone has transferred or may transfer money from your Card Account without your permission, call us at 1-855-492-5538. Under MasterCard Rules, you will not be held responsible for unauthorized transactions if: 1) you have used reasonable care in protecting your Card from loss or theft and 2) you have promptly reported to us when you knew that your MasterCard was lost or stolen. Zero Liability does not apply to MasterCard payment cards: 1) used for commercial purposes; or 2) anonymous prepaid cards, until such time as the identity of the cardholder has been registered with the Issuer. In the event that MasterCard Zero Liability does not apply, if you notify us within two (2) business days after you learn of any unauthorized transactions, you can lose no more than $50.00 if someone used your Card without your permission. If you do not notify us within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your Card and we can prove that we could have stopped someone from using your Card without your permission if you had promptly notified us, you could lose as much as $500.00.
Also, if you become aware of and/or your statement shows transactions that you did not make, notify us at once following the procedures stated in the paragraph labeled “Information About Your Right to Dispute Errors”. If you do not notify us within sixty (60) days after you become aware of the transaction and/or after the statement was made available to you, you may not get back any value you lost after the sixty (60) days if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the value if you had notified us in time. If your Card has been lost or stolen, we will close your Card Account to keep losses down. If a good reason (such as a long trip or a hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we will extend the time periods.
Your Card and your obligations under this Agreement may not be assigned. We may transfer our rights under this Agreement. Use of your Card is subject to all applicable rules and customs of any clearinghouse or other association involved in transactions. We do not waive our rights by delaying or failing to exercise them at any time. If any provision of this Agreement shall be determined to be invalid or unenforceable under any rule, law, or regulation of any governmental agency, local, state, or federal, the validity or enforceability of any other provision of this Agreement shall not be affected. This Agreement will be governed by the law of the State of Delaware except to the extent governed by federal law.
We may amend or change the terms and conditions of this Agreement at any time. You will be notified of any change in the manner provided by applicable law prior to the effective date of the change. However, if the change is made for security purposes, we can implement such change without prior notice. We may cancel or suspend your Card or this Agreement at any time. You may cancel this Agreement by returning the Card to us. Your cancellation of this Agreement will not affect any of our rights or your obligations arising under this Agreement prior to termination.
In the event your Card Account is closed, terminated, or cancelled for any reason, any remaining Google Wallet Balance will be returned to you. Refunds of balances will be made by electronic transmission to another account of your choosing, or such other means as GPC may determine or as may be set forth in the Google Payments Terms of Service. To request a refund of any remaining Account Balance please call 1-855-492-5538.
