Some time ago, Paypal had a security breach in its system and it did not deal with it on time. Now, this breach was exploited via Google Pay. Google probably doesn’t like it at all and has now removed PayPal from its own payment service. As of now, we do not know if the removal is temporary or permanent. In any case, the first users report that they can no longer set up PayPal with Google Pay. This implies that some users can no longer make payments in shops using a virtual credit card. According to users, PayPal seems to be usable for the Google Play Store, but only via the traditional way.
Will Google Pay reinstate the PayPal option?
However, some users still see PayPal as an option if they want to add a new payment method to Google Pay. This is also the case with a few colleagues. Unfortunately, both companies are very discreet towards the latest report. For the main time, some Google Pay users will have to cope with other payment methods other than PayPal.
Looking at “our crystal balls” we speculate that this separation is not permanent. When dealing with financial transactions, you have to be very careful so as to keep users’ funds safe. We believe Google is just being careful. In a short time, there will probably be a clarification of the circumstances. Thus, the disconnection between these companies for some users is probably only temporarily
Some users have seen unauthorized payments in the past few days. These payments are made by fraudsters and the virtual credit card is Paypal. As of now, PayPal has not been able to explain how this could happen in detail. Do you think Google Pay is doing the right thing by disconnecting from PayPal? Let us know your thoughts in the comments
