Google, PayPal Extend Mobile and Online Payment Partnership
PayPal today said it has deepened its relationship with Google and Google Pay in order to make it easier for people to make payments from their mobile devices and on the web. PayPal says people who add PayPal to any of Google's services will be able to pay across the entire Google ecosystem anywhere PayPal is offered as a payment option. For example, if a person adds PayPal to Google Pay, support for PayPal will be added to that person's other Google services, including Google Play and the Google Store, without additional logins. "PayPal and Google Pay share common goals of creating simple payment solutions across our platforms that enable people to shop more seamlessly," said PayPal. The two companies hope the new collaboration eases the pain points people often encounter when attempting to make mobile and online payments. The new Google Pay and PayPal integration will be live soon.
