Accept Google Pay Payments in WordPress

Just think of the scenario, you have to make an urgent payment online but don’t have the card details with you! So, wouldn’t it be amazing if you could pay on any website simply just using your Google account instead of putting your card details every time you make a new purchase?

Yes, we are talking about the phenomenal digital wallet system Google Pay. It’s a fast-paced and interconnected world now. Everyone wants simplicity in payments and never likes to put the card details repeatedly when they can do the same with a single tap. 

If you are taking online payments on your website, you must provide a swift payment process &  better checkout experience to beat the competition behind. The easier the checkout process, the higher the conversion rate. 

In this blog today, we will guide you on how to accept Google Pay payments into the WordPress website so that you can increase your conversion rate manifold.

What is Google Pay?

Google Pay is a digital payment platform developed by the tech giant Google. It allows users to make payments, send money, and manage their finances using their mobile devices and the internet. Google Pay offers a convenient and secure way to make transactions without the need to carry physical cash or credit cards.

Google Pay also facilitates online transactions on various websites and apps. Users can choose Google Pay as their preferred payment method during checkout, making the process faster and more streamlined.

Moreover, users can add their credit or debit cards to the Google Pay account. With the Near Field Communication (NFC) technology, they can make contactless payments at supported point-of-sale (POS) terminals by simply tapping their phones on the payment terminal.

How does Google Pay work?

Google Pay is very simple to use with your Google account and smartphone. Basically, all you need to do is set up your debit or credit card in your Google Pay account. You can download the Google Pay app or do it directly from the browser accessing your Google account. 

Whenever you need to make an online payment, select the Google Pay option and put in your Google credential. Google will automatically debit the balance from your card that you set up in the payment method option. It saves you time to put card details every time you purchase from a new website. 

Is Google Pay safe?

Google Pay is one of the most secure payment platforms. Google Pay implements multiple security measures to protect users’ financial data and transactions. 

When the users add their credit or debit card to Google Pay, the system generates a virtual card number known as a “token.” This token is used for authenticating the transaction instead of your actual card details. It ensures that your sensitive card details are not shared with merchants during payment processing, reducing the risk of your information getting exposed in case of a data breach.

Besides, Google Pay sends notifications to your registered email or phone number for every transaction. If there is any suspicious activity, you can quickly identify and report it.

Google Pay uses encryption technology to secure your payment data during transmission. This ensures that your information remains private and protected while it travels between your device and the payment processing network.
