You can add both your virtual and physical Payhawk cards to the Google Wallet app on Android devices directly from the Payhawk mobile app.

Google Wallet doesn't support work profiles. Therefore, to be able to add your Payhawk VISA card to Google Wallet on your Android device, you must use your personal profile with the Google Wallet app.
