Galaxy Watch5/ 5 Pro Google Wallet not working: "This phone can't be set up for contactless payments"

Hi,

Got my Galaxy Watch5 Pro today. Just setting it up and trying to add cards to my Google Wallet.

I'm in the process of changing banks, so have multiple cards.

I have tried Visa Debit, MasterCard Debit & MasterCard Credit (don't currently have a Visa Credit to try).
None of them can be added. I just keep getting "This phone can't be set up for contactless payments" when I attempt to add a card.

One of the things I loved about my Watch4 Classic was the use of Google Pay/Wallet. I may have to return this and keep the Watch4 Classic. The only reason to change was the larger battery life.

I'm in Ireland (if that makes a difference).

Does anyone know why this is happening or have a solution?

It's been a problem for 3 days now. Google knows about it, we are waiting for a fix to the problem.

Thank you for the quick reply BarikUK.
I really hope they fix it soon. Samsung Pay doesn't work here, which is pain.

Not for me, I'm afraid.
Did you get an app update for it to work?
Where in the world are you located?

Als je de google wallet op je horloge in je apps update dus niet op je telefoon dan kun je een nieuwe kaart toevoegen
