Welcome to your new wallet
Vodafone Pay is part of the Vodafone Wallet. You can add all your credit and debit cards, plus your PayPal account, for fast, secure, contactless payments. You can even add your loyalty cards, so you can rack up the points as you shop.
Why get Vodafone Pay?
- Forget fumbling for cards. Vodafone Pay puts all your ways to pay in one place – even PayPal. And setting it up is easy
- Works with any UK debit and credit cards from Visa and Mastercard® - and it even works with Paypal
- Fly through checkouts, pay points and tills with just one tap, wherever you see a contactless sign
- Spending over £30? You'll just need to enter a PIN
- No signal? No power? No problem. For payments under £30, Vodafone Pay even works when your phone is switched off, or your battery has run out
Plus, with Vodafone Loyalty Cards you can convert your loyalty cards to a digital format and store them in your Vodafone Wallet – so you can collect loyalty points with your phone.

How does it work?
Vodafone Wallet is an Android app for Near Field Communication (NFC)-compatible mobile devices. Using Vodafone Pay, it stores all your credit and debit cards, plus your PayPal account, together in one place.
Getting started is easy
1. Download Vodafone Wallet from Google Play
2. If you don’t have an NFC SIM, the app will take you through the ordering process and we'll pop one in the post, or order one now
3. Once you’ve activated your SIM, open the app and add your credit and debit cards by taking their picture. Got a PayPal account? Add that too with your existing username and password.
Then you’re ready to go – simply tap and pay whenever you see the contactless sign.
With Vodafone Pay in your wallet, you can pay for anything up to the value of £30 anywhere you see the contactless symbol.
How to use it
It’s just like using a contactless card. Simply tap your phone on the reader, wait for the beep and confirmation of payment approved.
Forget fumbling for the right card and remembering its PIN – for larger value payments, you'll need to know the card PIN which you choose when setting up your card.
Is it safe?
Wallet and Vodafone Pay are very secure. When you make a payment we don’t pass your actual card details to the merchant. We send them a virtual card number instead – making the service quick, safe and secure.
If your phone is lost or stolen, please get in touch with the 24-hour lost and stolen helpline by calling 191 free from a Vodafone mobile phone or 03333 040 191 from any other UK phone (standard call charges apply).

Live or work in London? Now you can travel throughout the capital with Vodafone Pay. Simply tap your phone to pay for journeys on London Underground, London Buses, the Tramlink, Docklands Light Railway and London Overground trains.
To make sure you’re ready to travel, complete the following steps:
1. Check the Google Play store to ensure you have the latest version of Vodafone Wallet
2. While travelling on TfL please make sure you always tap in and out with the same card. Please don't tap in with your phone and out with your plastic card as this will incur multiple charges.
If you need to contact TfL with any queries, you can see your virtual card details in Settings > TfL settings - just switch these to 'ON'.
- Rather than queueing for a ticket or topping up your Oyster card, just tap and go
- No more fumbling for a contactless card at a busy station – and there’s no risk of card clash (which can result in much higher charges)
- You can check your journey and payment history on your phone by visiting your TFL online account
- You can take advantage of capping – which means you’ll never be charged more than the daily or weekly cap when you travel in London using Vodafone Pay. Find out more
