Online payment with Google Pay has now been simplified on Google by Google. Users who want to make payments on Google Chrome no longer need to have the Google sync option turned on—access to autofill for payments only requires you to sign into your Google Account while using a desktop.
The new update announced by Google, enables you to access previously saved payment information in your Google Account. Shopping online just got easier because the process no longer requires you to sync your payment information between browsers on different platforms.
While synchronization of other information is not needed as the feature only deals with Google Pay information saved in your Google Account, you, however, need to enter your card’s CVC code to complete a transaction. As soon as the payment has been processed, a confirmation email from Google Pay will be sent to your inbox with all relevant details.
“When you’re signed into Chrome on your laptop, you’ll be able to use payment methods previously saved to your Google Account to fill in checkout forms. And you can use this feature without having to turn on Chrome sync. You’ll also be able to use the payment info you’ve saved in your Google Account across your devices in Chrome where you’re signed in, and wherever Google Pay is accepted,” Google says in a blog post.
The latest update also offers you the chance to manage your credit and debit card linked with your Google Account under the Account settings, according to Google.
Last month, Google Pay announced that PayPal will be further integrated into its app—this time around, merchants can choose to enable PayPal as a payment method in their Google Pay integration. This can be done in either of these ways—if Google Pay has already been implemented on their site, or by adding a small code change to the list of allowed payment methods.
Once integration has been made, online shopper who wish to check out using Google Pay can then select PayPal to complete their transaction. This effectively reduces the processes involved in using your PayPal to make payment as you would no longer be required to sign into your PayPal account to do that. The integration also means when you make payments with PayPal via Google Pay, you will have access to its Purchase Protection and Return Shipping benefits among others.
“We’re thrilled to announce we’ve expanded our collaboration with PayPal to make payments easy and seamless no matter how or where your customers like to shop. 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,” Jose Ugia, Google Developers Engineer wrote in a blog post.
