I have been using Google Pay on my Galaxy S8 (SM-G950F) for year with Magisk, I was still able to use Google Pay no problem on Feb 28. I noticed on March 1 when I try pay with Google Pay I got message saying "You can no longer pay in stores with Google Pay". I checked Magisk to make sure it still pass SafetyNet and check was success yet I try to add the credit card again on Google Pay I got message "Couldn't finish setup to pay in stores - This phone can't be used to pay in stores. This may be because it is rooted or altered in some other way.

I am getting this error too. Working fine until a few days ago. SafetyNet reports all true, Magisk Hide set to Google Pay, Play, etc.

No one mentions what ROM they are using

fwiw Google Play works fine on My Note 4 with unofficial LOS 16 (Pie) and Magisk 18.1

Used it last 2 hours ago...

Google Pay never worked on the previous LOS 15.1 (Oreo) on ANY build/version of Magisk, it was a ROM issue.....only worked on stock ROM for the Note 4

So i got quite the surprise when i flashed Pie and it was workies....

I am running on stock rom, my S8 is still running on Android 7.0 and as I said Gpay was working just fine until March 1. I thought about upgrading to latest stock rom with Android 9.0 but currently there isn't any instruction on how to root Android 9.0 on S8 yet.

The new Google Play services update caused this.

Temporary workaround:

1. Disable Google Pay/Find My Device as Device Administrators in Settings > Security & location > Device Administrators.

2. Search "Google Play services" in the Settings search bar.

3. Press the three dots and press "Uninstall previous updates".

4. Download this update - https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google...-7-99-release/
Pick your needed edition (arm or arm64, etc.), download it and install it.

5. Disable Background data access for Google Play Services and Google Play in their respective App Info pages.

6. Download Google Pay from the Play Store.

7. Set up your cards. Enjoy!

Or

1. Upgrade to Magisk Canary by following steps here:

https://forum.xda-developers.com/app...-edge-t3839337

Not recommended for daily use!

Never EVER update Google Play services manually, until a Magisk update is available that bypasses the upgraded SafetyNet. Note that Google Play services is responsible for adding/verifying the card, not the Google Pay app! Hence why there seems to be an overlay when adding a card/verifying an existing one.

Tested Google Pay versions:

2.79.x-2.83.235070858 - working

Tested Google Play services versions:

14.7.99 - working

14.8.49-15.0.10 - works on Magisk 18.2 Canary

Thank you so much for this. Your instructions were followed to the letter and it worked. I had to use a terminal emulator, su, and "pm uninstall com.google.android.gms" to uninstall updates for Google Play Services for steps 2 & 3 on my OnePlus 6T.

Now that it's working I used Titanium Backup to backup this version of Google Play Services and protected the backup.

Again, thanks.
