You can use Google Pay wherever tap & go is available for purchases under $100 (purchases over $100 need your PIN).

The daily limit for Google Pay is a maximum of $100 per transaction (anything greater requires your PIN), and a total of $1,200 per day.
This total daily limit is shared with the Visa Debit or Credit card that the app is linked to, as the app is a virtual image of the card and shares the same card number.
