3 Ways to Accept Google Pay Online

7 min read

Google Pay is a digital payment platform that allows users to make payments with their Android phones and other compatible devices. These are some ways to integrate payment gateways to accept Google Pay into your business site or app.

Google Pay currently has 100 million users, according to Clevertap, and is accepted at millions of stores, online and in-app purchases, and is integrated with many popular banking and payment providers.

Google Pay also allows users to send and receive money to friends, family, and other contacts, which makes it a preferred mode of transaction. So, if your business still needs to leverage this digital wallet, it is missing out on millions of potential customers.

Google Pay is free to use and simple to set up. It is a fast, secure, and convenient way to make payments and keep track of transactions. The payment information is securely stored in the user’s Google Account, making it easy to use and manage.  This is one of the advantages of Google Pay; when you integrate it with your web or mobile app, you allow users to use all of the payment methods stored in their Google Pay account to make purchases through your business. This decreases friction in the checkout process.

Google Pay is also integrated with Google Assistant, allowing users to easily make payments without opening the app.
