Last month, Google Pay added PayPal integration for merchants. 

“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,” Google said in a blog post.

The company said that using PayPal was a great way for merchants to grow their customer base.

“Hundreds of millions of users already have their payment methods saved to their Google Account,” Google said. “And as of 2018, customers who use their PayPal account to make a purchase on a Google app or service like Google Play and YouTube can automatically choose that PayPal account when they pay with Google Pay — no new setup required. 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.”
