Google and PayPal have announced to expand their integration. This makes it possible for sellers to offer PayPal payments on their website or mobile app via Google Pay.
Google and PayPal have been working together on payments since 2017. Then it became clear that PayPal became part of Android Pay. Last year Android Pay was merged with Google Wallet under the name Google Pay, which was rolled out worldwide. The new service must become a solution in every product of the company, so that there is always a payment option via the payment data stored in the Google Account.
Last year it also became possible to add PayPal as a payment method in Google Pay, after which users could use it to pay for services such as Gmail, YouTube, Google Play and Google Stores. A similar integration is now coming to sellers who accept Google Pay as a payment method, writes TechCrunch.
With the extensive integration, merchants can choose to use PayPal as a payment method in their own Google Pay integration. Here sellers only need to change a small piece of code in the list of allowed payments, provided that Google Pay is already implemented in the website. After that, any buyer who wants to pay with Google Pay can also choose PayPal to complete the payment.
The advantage of the integration for consumers is that they do not have to log into PayPal if they use it via Google Pay. This reduces the number of steps required for payment, which in turn can lead to more sales. In addition, consumers have access to PayPal’s Purchase Protection and Return Shipment benefits.
For online sellers who are also PayPal sellers, the money is in the PayPal Business Account within a few minutes, should a user choose PayPal via Google Pay.This news article was automatically translated from Dutch to give Techzine.eu a head start.
