Is gpay working for you? Tried with gpay open - no reaction when holding near the bank terminal. Tried from home screen - the same. Previous devices like s9, note9 worked fine. Now I cannot find the reason

If your Google pay isn't working try these 2 options:
1. Uninstall google pay and re-add the payment method (card) even if you already see the card is there
2. I think this is most probably issue:
When you go to NFC settings in your Samsungs settings not Google Pay app, you'll see "tap and pay",this option will be activated as your nfc is on,tap on the writting and on the bottom of the screen you will see 2 options,left is Payment and right is Others. Tap on "others" and you'll see 2 options: first is Nearby(tap 2 phones to transfer photos/data) and 2nd is Google Pay,make sure that is SELECTED.
Once I selected that option, Google Pay worked.
I contacted Google before, but their brilliant support team and account specialists couldn't figured it out
