PayPal Now Fully Integrates With Google Accounts

We already partner with Google to make it easy for our shared users to pay via PayPal in-store, online and in-app with Google Pay and on Chrome mobile web at millions of online merchants using their PayPal accounts and their device authentication. For example, when adding their PayPal details to a Google Play account, users will be able to make the same details available as a payment option across Gmail, YouTube, Google Pay and Google Store, and even for peer-to-peer payments, without needing to log in again.

PayPal, independent company from its former parent company eBay since 2018, has been in the online payment arena for about 20 years. You can use Venmo (which is owned by PayPal).

This recent news comes on the heels of the company's acquisition of iZettle, a Swedish company specializing in payment solutions. Payments are still made using physical credit cards, but smartphone applications have become an increasingly popular option. The company is focused on giving the "unbanked" a pathway to contribute to the digital economy, especially as companies like Uber and Airbnb require digital payments, per The Wall Street Journal. With a crowded landscape, being accessible to customers is of the utmost importance.

PayPal will soon become a payment option throughout Google apps w/ one-time sign-in

This won't mean a lot for everyone, but if you're a heavy PayPal user, this is bound to be exciting news. For the users, convenience is a top priority and linking their PayPal account to their Google account may be a minor step with major advantages.

This is really a win-win for both Google and PayPal, as I know I have personally backed out of transactions when not presented with PayPal payment options, and PayPal gets the added transaction revenues through Google Pay purchases.
