Garmin Pay is a contactless payment solution that lets you make purchases
quickly and effortlessly right from your wrist - no wallet required.
Quick & Easy
Garmin Pay is a convenient way to use your eligible PNC Visa® consumer and small business credit and debit cards, as well as SmartAccess® cards to make in-store purchases right from your wrist. Simply tap your compatible Garmin watch to the contactless payment terminal to make a payment - no need to fumble for your phone, cards or cash.
Pay on the Go
Using the Garmin ConnectTM app and a compatible Garmin watch, you can use your eligible PNC Visa credit, debit and SmartAccess cards to make everyday purchases with just a tap of your wrist. Garmin Pay works virtually anywhere contactless payments are accepted.

How do I add my PNC card to Garmin Pay?
To add a PNC Visa credit, debit or SmartAccess card to Garmin Pay, you will need to download the most recent version of the Garmin Connect app from your mobile device’s app store and have an eligible mobile device paired with an eligible Garmin watch. Once your mobile device is paired, you can add your PNC cards to Garmin Pay by tapping on the image of your Garmin watch in the header of the app and then choose Garmin Pay from the list of features. You can then enter your card information manually or if you have an iOS device you can scan your card by using the camera on your mobile device to capture it automatically. Some customers may also be required to verify the card they added to Garmin Pay by logging into the PNC Mobile app on their mobile device when prompted. Once verified, your PNC credit, debit or SmartAccess card will be ready to use with Garmin Pay on your Garmin watch.
How do I use Garmin Pay?
Garmin Pay can be used to make in-store payments at most merchants equipped with NFC (Near-Field Communication) contactless payment terminals. To make an in-store payment, simply choose the Garmin Pay wallet icon from the main menu on your Garmin watch, enter your Garmin Pay PIN, and hold your watch near the contactless payment terminal. An on-screen message and subtle vibration will confirm the payment was sent to the terminal.
With Garmin Pay, your actual card number is never shared with the merchant during the transaction. When you make a purchase, a digital account number along with a dynamic, transaction specific code is used to process your payment. This means that your actual credit or debit card number is never transmitted with the payment to the merchant.

Managing Garmin Pay
Why do I need to verify my card with PNC when I add it to Garmin Pay?
For security purposes, you may be asked to use the PNC Mobile app to verify your PNC credit, debit or SmartAccess card before you can start using Garmin Pay.
What should I do when I receive a replacement card?
Unless opted out of the Visa Account Updater service, when a PNC credit or debit card enrolled in Garmin Pay expires or is replaced due to loss, theft, fraud or chip card upgrade, PNC will automatically update your card information in Garmin Pay within two (2) business days from when your replacement card is activated. To update Garmin Pay immediately and not wait the two (2) business days for the automatic update, manually remove the existing card and add the new card to the Garmin Connect app.
What happens if I replace, update or lose my Garmin watch or connected mobile device?
If you have misplaced your Garmin watch, you can remove or suspend the PNC cards you added to the device through the Garmin Connect app on the mobile device you paired with the watch. If you lost both your Garmin watch and your paired mobile device, contact PNC immediately at 1-855-406-3164 . This will not affect your plastic cards, which can still be used to make purchases.
Why does my card image in Garmin Pay look different from my physical card?
Your card image in Garmin Pay is a digital representation of your physical PNC credit, debit or SmartAccess card. The image you see in Garmin Pay may not be an exact copy of your PNC card.
How do I un-enroll a card from Garmin Pay?

Tap on the Manage Your Wallet button and select the card you wish to remove. Simply tap on the Delete Card button to remove the selected card from Garmin Pay.
