Say Goodbye To Entering Card Details At Checkout ‘Pay With Google’ Will Handle It All
In the golden age of digital payments, we hardly use cash. Majority of users have more than one credit or debit card, and their Google account is linked to at least one of the cards through Google Play or Android Pay or any other service. It also means that Google can make digital payments easier for you by taking advantage of the already available data. The search engine giant has finally put the plan into execution and has launched “Pay with Google” program.
The “Pay with Google” program is integrated with apps and websites in Chrome to make the payments checkout a lot simpler for you. By using this program, you do not need to type your card details every time you checkout, just add your card details to Google and select “Pay with Google” at checkout. Google Payment API is the technology that makes all this possible.
When you select “Pay with Google” you have the option to checkout with any card that you have added to your Google account from services like YouTube, Google Play, Chrome, or Android Pay. Google automatically sends the merchant your payment details and shipping address. All the information is fetched from your Google account which saves you from typing this information every time you checkout on a new website or app.
For now, Pay with Google is limited to Chrome browser and Android apps, but Google has plans to “bring this experience to other browsers as well.” Google has collaborated with an array of online services and retailers to make the program more convenient for the users.
The services that have partnered with Google are Doordash, Eat24, Instacart, Kayak, Postmates, Wish, and more. Other services like Airbnb, StubHub, EAT24, Instacart, Papa John’s, Deliveroo, and many more become a part of the program soon.
Payment providers for ‘Pay with Google’
Additionally, to make “Pay with Google” program more accessible to the developers, Google has uploaded documents that will enlighten developers on how to start integrating the payment program into their apps. Google has also partnered with a slew of payment providers to make the program successful.
The current payment partners include PayPal’s Braintree, Stripe, Vantiv, Worldpay, Adyen, and Groupe Paysafe. We will get to see more payment providers joining the program soon, these providers are ACI, Assist, Ebanx, First Data, Global Payments, GMO, IMSolutions, and TapPay.
