It’s hard to overstate Google’s long-term efforts to get more financial institutions to sign up to work with Google Pay. A few years ago we were talking the day its list of American banks could reach 2,000 – a milestone that is in the far rear view at this point. And while you might think it will just run out of banks eventually, we’re already hitting 3,000. To help us along the way, we’ve got nearly a dozen new banks joining the club.

Throughout the month of June We’ve seen some 40 new banks register their support for Google Pay, and while we still have a long way to go to reach a similar number in July, these 11 new additions certainly give us a good place to start:

  • Americana Community Bank (MN)
  • Animas Credit Union (MN)
  • Bank of Alapaha (GA)
  • Finex Credit Union (CT)
  • First Harrison Bank (IN)
  • Frandsen Bank & Trust (MN)
  • GPA Credit Union (GA)
  • Glenwood State Bank (IA)
  • Glenwood State Bank (MN)
  • Community Heritage Bank (MO)
  • Hiawatha Bank and Trust Company (IA)
  • Stride bank (OK)

Doesn’t that make 11 for you either? Well, Google Pay once backed Glenwood State Bank, but failed to specify which state it was. This means that one of them here is new, but we can’t really say which one.

17 more

We still have about a week left in July, and hitting that 40 goal looks increasingly plausible as Google adds 17 more banks to its list, bringing our monthly total to 28.

  • Altamaha Bank & Trust (GA)
  • National Bank Buena Vista (IL)
  • Camino Federal Credit Union (CA)
  • Century Heritage Federal Credit Union (PA)
  • Concordia Bank (MO)
  • Ferguson Federal Credit Union (MS)
  • First National Bank (OH)
  • Front Royal Federal Credit Union (VA)
  • Ingersoll-Rand Federal Credit Union (PA)
  • Bank of Northern Alabama (AL)
  • North American Banking Corporation (MN)

  • Bank R (TX)
  • Roscoe State Bank (TX)
  • Southern Teachers & Parents Federal Credit Union (LA)
  • West Bank Bank Company (MI)
  • Wichita Falls Federal Credit Union (TX)

18 new

Well, Google didn’t give us another update on supported paid banks until the July release, but this week we see the first new August entries coming in. We are off to a good start with 18 selected banks:

  • bankecda (ID)
  • Calhoun Liberty Employees Credit Union (FL)

17 more

In the past two weeks, Google Pay has supported 17 new institutions. It seems to be pretty much comparable to the course with the pace we’ve seen so far this summer. Say whatever you want about the Second Law of Thermodynamics, but nothing here shows the slightest sign of slowing down:

  • Allied Healthcare Federal Credit Union (CA)
  • Astra Bank (KS)
  • Blue Foundry Bank (NJ)
  • Central State Credit Union (CA)
  • Community First Bank (LA)
  • Farmers Trust & Savings Bank (IA)

  • Independent People’s Bank (AL)
  • Bank of the Republic of Texas (TX)
  • United Community Bank of North Dakota (ND)
  • Northern State Federal Credit Union
  • Federal Credit Union XCEL

Again with the 17

Some people will tell you that the number 42 is the ultimate answer, but if Google Pay had anything to say about it, we think that number would look more like 17. Despite that outlandish little 18, we have a nice updated footage. de Pay where Google supports 17 other banks. And today the sequence continues:

  • Bank of Colombia (KY)
  • CFCU Community Credit Union (NY)
  • Calhoun County Bank, Inc. (WV)
  • ELCA Federal Credit Union (IL)
  • ESB Bank (MN)
  • Embers Credit Union (MI)
  • Louisiana ETF (LA)
  • First united credit union
  • GHA Federal Credit Union (CT)
  • Federal credit union BID-IIC
  • State Bank of Ipava (IL)
  • Lenco Credit Union (MI)
  • Lincoln County Credit Union (MT)
  • Altenburg People’s Bank (MO)
  • Red Crown Common Credit Union (OK)
  • State Savings Bank (IA)
  • Tri-Valley Bank (IA)

What, just 12?

Hold on, hold on, hold on. We had a good thing here, Google Pay. You would add support for 17 (or 18) new banks, and then we would tell people about those 17 (or 18) banks. It worked great for weeks. It was our thing.

Well, apparently someone is feeling a bit independent right now, and decided to prematurely publish a list of … 12 new financial institutions. Not worth your time, right?

Technically, there are 13 listed here, but one of these early community credit unions isn’t new-new (you can guess which). Honestly, we’re so upset that we’re not 17, we’re going to need some time to think about it all.

  • Bank of Louisiana (MO)
  • Eastern Connecticut Savings Bank (CT)
  • First Community Credit Union (MO)
  • First Community Credit Union (ND)
  • First Security Bank (MN)
  • Flagship Bank of Minnesota (MN)
  • Guardian Credit Union (MS)
  • Laurens State Bank (IA)
  • Miami Savings Bank (OH)
  • Security Savings Bank (IL)
  • Tendto Credit Union (PA)
  • Ozark Commercial Bank (AL)
  • UT Federal Credit Union (TN)
