Google has announced that Google Pay’s collaboration with PayPal will make accepting payments online easier for e-commerce businesses.
“Now, you’ll be able to accept PayPal with Google Pay on your app or website in all 24 countries where your customers can link their PayPal account to Google Pay,” the announcement said.
The integration is expected to add value to online businesses as customers will be able to choose their PayPal account when paying with Google Pay. “When you enable PayPal as a payment method on your Google Pay integration, all of these customers will be able to seamlessly check out on your website or app.”
PayPal merchants need only to enable the acceptance of PayPal through Google Pay, which will allow payments to be delivered directly to their PayPal Business accounts with no minimum processing requirements.
Merchants that currently use Google Pay can enable PayPal by adding it to their list of allowed payment methods. “Once you’ve done that, you’ll receive a token you can send to your servers as soon as your customers confirm their transaction. You’ll use this token to issue a call against PayPal’s payment service.”
In addition to the perks of PayPal’s Purchase Protection and Return Shipping, users will also be able to enjoy faster, simpler checkout. “We’re excited to offer developers the best of both worlds with Google Pay and PayPal, all while making payments simpler for customers and businesses around the world. Stay tuned for more updates,” Google said.
