First, a shout out to all members of CCM and everything you do. Having said that, I'm reaching out to you for your advice.

I recently signed up with Google Pay. However, it caused the bank to put a hold on use of my debit card. So, now I have to go in person to my bank so they'll let me use it as normal.

So, I have a few questions that I would really appreciate your help:
1. Because I have an Android phone, am I required to use Google Pay?
2. Has anyone else experienced similar problems?
3. If so, how have you handled it?

Thank you
