eBay rolls out Google Pay on its marketplace platform
eBay is introducing Google Pay to its suite of payment options. The company announced last year that it will intermediate end-to-end payments on its marketplace to further simplify and improve the customer experience and expects to manage a majority of the payments on its platform in 2021.
Google Pay users will be able to complete purchases on eBay via the app, mobile web and on desktop from sellers participating in managed payments. Customers who have the Google Pay digital wallet will also be able to complete purchases on desktop, regardless of operating system or device.
Google Pay will be available to Android users starting in early April, joining Apple Pay as the latest payment option on the platform. Both 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 program grows to process more volume in additional geographies.
