All pass types except boarding passes are supported for Google Pay.
Google Pay is a Wallet app by Google that serves the purposes of paying using an Android smartphone as well as saving and managing passes (event tickets, boarding passes, vouchers, membership cards etc.).
Google Pay was previously called Android Pay. Android Pay has less features, for example there's no support for Event tickets and Boarding passes. We strongly recommend that you (and your users) update to the latest version of Google Pay before starting to use Google Pay passes.
Google Pay is pre-installed on some but not on all Android phones but it's the easiest way to manage passes on Android.
All information about Google Pay for passes can be found here: https://developers.google.com/pay/passes/
There are no special prerequisites in order to provide Google Pay passes to your customers. Google Pay must be activated in our backend before Passcreator starts providing Google Pay passes. You can do this here: activate Google Pay in Passcreator.
