    After upgrading my Oneplus 6 to Android 11 I can no longer use Google Pay for contactless payments and I cannot figure out why. I have tried a full system reset and added and re-added both my debit cards (neither work), i've made sure NFC is on (i never turn it off), i've done every troubleshooting guide I can find to no avail.

    I'm tempted to downgrade to Android 10 since I use my phone for contactless payments almost every day.

    I have the same issue. This is a serious bug and I will downgrade to A10. Google pay is really important

    I have this problem too. On every NFC pay, need to restart NFC on phone, because that doesn't work.
    Need to fix it. Very bad bug for me.

    Same problem here - Google Pay not working since the OxygenOS11 update on my OP6. Tried removing cards from gpay, clearing the pay app's cache and data and re-adding cards, still doesn't work. For me, the payment terminal at multiple merchants shows the message "unsupported card" when I scan. (Have checked with my bank, no problems on their side.)

    I have been experiencing the same after the last upgrade to android 11. The problem is not happening consistently. For example, I was able to pay with Google Pay two days ago without any issue but today I tried it at 3 different shops and every time the POS terminal was reporting a "reading error" but I have been seeing this problem very frequently since the day I upgraded.

    Hi, I'm also confirming this problem with Google Pay, some payments will be made, some (most) will not be made.

    Google pay doesn't work. Deleted all payment methods, uninstalled the app. I installed / updated the application, added payment methods and still can't use Google Pay. Works 1 time out of 10, each time in a different way. On android 10 worked everywhere and always without problems

    I found the way which works for me. Usually my NFC is always turned ON and google pay does not work. Now i turn OFF NFC always and turn it back ON only when i need to pay. When google pay is done i turn OFF NFC again.
    Today i check this four times and everything worked

    I can confirm this, but I just disable and enable NFC right before payment and this works, too.

    Good find but this is not how is supposed to be working. I have already downgraded to android 10 and it works every time. Most likely Android 11 will not reach maturity and is hard to call it stable at this time.

    Mine too. Google Pay not working post upgrade. I was rebooting each time I needed to use GPay to get it working again, but it still fails after some time. Nice to know workaround is NFC off/on rather than reboot. Would prefer it to work without workarounds!

    This seems to work for me too but the problem hasn't occurred in the last week. I'm pretty sure I didn't always turn NFC off and on again 🤷‍♂️

    Can confirm, off-on before paying works. It was easy to automate it with Tasker, but a real fix would be nice.

    The latest 11.1.11 update appears to have resolved the issue for me, though it's not explicitly mentioned in the release notes. I guess it falls under the "fixed known issues" bucket.
