Google Pay Activation - no SMS verification

I’ve been trying to add my card to Google Pay in the UK - however the SMS verification messages aren’t being sent (phone number correct and checked and verified!) - I did receive a text this morning with a code from my attempts yesterday - only to be told the code could not be used to verify - assuming it has expired - the SMS messages need sending out in near real time this doesn’t seem to be happening - so how do we verify cards on Google Pay?
