If you've come across Google Pay error code AF when attempting to add a bank to the app, we've got you covered.

Google Pay is a widely used digital payment platform offering convenience and efficiency in managing your financial transactions. However, encountering issues and errors such as U13, U28 and of course, AF can disrupt your seamless payment experience.

Whether you are using Google Pay on iPhone or Android, this guide will provide you with the necessary steps to address the AF error code and resolve your issue.

How to fix Google Pay error code AF

To fix the Google Pay error code AF, the best course of action is to wait for a while and try again. This is recommended because it appears that the bank server is currently experiencing heavy traffic, leading to these connection errors.

Smaller banks often have limited server capacity, meaning the number of users or requests they can handle simultaneously is quite low. This can cause connectivity problems during busy periods.

Therefore, we recommend trying adding the bank to your GPay account during off-peak hours, such as early in the morning or late at night when server traffic is typically lighter. This can increase your chances of successful transactions.

If you require urgent access to funds, you have the option to use Google Pay at an ATM to withdraw cash or explore alternative services like Paytm or Venmo for quick financial transactions.

What does error code AF on Google Pay mean?

Google Pay error code AF indicates the application encountered an issue when attempting to communicate with the bank servers.

This communication issue can arise when the app either doesn't receive a response from the bank servers within the designated timeout period or is unable to establish a connection with the bank servers altogether.

One of the primary reasons for this connection problem is the high volume of requests overwhelming the bank servers. Additionally, server downtime or other technical issue can also contribute to this issue.
