Keeping up with the online-purchasing habits of the millennials and Gen Z, US-based e-commerce platform eBay has added Google Pay as a payment option to its Android app to further increase customer choice in its new “managed payments” plan.

The “managed payments” plan from eBay allows users to check out without leaving the platform, using the payment method of their choice.

The integration would let Google Pay users complete purchases on eBay via the app, mobile web and on desktop from sellers participating in managed payments, regardless of the operating system (OS) or device, eBay wrote in a blog post on Thursday.

The app “Google Pay” displayed on a user’s Smartphone.

“Offering Google Pay as a form of payment is another significant step toward providing our customers with more choice in their payment options, and creating an experience that is tailored to personal preferences,” said Alyssa Cutright, Vice President of Global Payments, Billing and Risk at eBay.

Google Pay would be made available to Android users in early April as the newest payment option, joining Apple Pay.

“Both the payment options are currently only accessible when buying from sellers enrolled in eBay’s new payments experience, and will be increasingly available to shoppers as the programme grows to process more volume in additional geographies,” the post said. (IANS)

Google has made it easier to buy things online using its Chrome browser. Now, 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.

You can use this feature without having to turn on “Chrome sync”. The feature takes advantage of Google Pay, which has been recently expanding to more sites across the web.

“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,” the company said in a statement late on Wednesday.

When you’re signed-in and Chrome offers you the option of using a card from your Google Account, it will ask you to confirm the card’s CVC. If you choose to save a new card to your account, you will receive a confirmation email from Google Pay with additional information.

“You can manage and delete the cards in your account at anytime by going to your Google Account > Payments & subscriptions > Payment methods,” the company said. Using this new feature doesn’t turn on Chrome sync. If a user prefers to save payment methods only locally on his device, he can still do that:

“Add your card in Chrome Settings > Payment methods > Add. When you sign into any Google website, you’re also signed into Chrome with the same account. You can turn off ‘Allow Chrome sign-in’ altogether in settings,” Google said. (IANS)
