OMG I cannot find out how to use GPay, I'm used to Apple Pay and I'm not necessarily a fan on Samsung pay 😞

That's correct. Look for wallet not gpay. Gpay is a place to configure cards and make it usable online but it's not usable for paying at the store. Use the wallet. And if you are beta testing one ui5 / Android 13, there's a good chance that one or more of your banks will say that your phone does not have the proper security and it won't work and you have to use Samsung pay. That's what I've been going through lately.

GPay is being phased out and replaced by Google Wallet.

Here in the USA we have both Google wallet and Google pay. Google pay is used for p2p payments and online payments and also has a current balance because you can store money there. Yes gpay was fazed out but it was replaced with Google pay . But the app looks like gpay

Right if you're making a payment through an app or online it will often offer you the opportunity to pay with Google pay or PayPal or a credit card etc. Samsung doesn't show up in websites and other apps. It's strictly for paying for things at the cash register. If you want to use Google pay, now known as gpa, had a cash register then you want to go get the wallet which has the same coloring and looks similar but it's not the same. As people have said here g pay itself is really about setting up your payments and making payments online or in other apps and the wallet is what you use at the store to tap a card machine. Really it's unnecessarily tedious and confusing to have two separate apps like that but that's the way they're doing it at the moment.
