Google Pay expunges PayPal from payment service

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?

    That’s pretty bad news for me, I’m traveling to Sweden on Sunday and thought I could rely on my virtual PayPal card…

    This is not the first time Paypal has had a major security vulnerability that was exploited. In the meanwhile, neither of my two banks nor my investment company has had a single one.

    Maybe paypal should hire some real security experts? Not to mention they were warned about these vulnerabilities and took more than six months to address them.

    Check your credit card companies and bank(s). Many offer virtual credit cards with their phone apps. Capital One does. Their “Eno” tools work with their app and in a browser to generate unique re-usable (and lockable) virtual numbers for as many merchants as you want. I have one for each company I do business with, and make a throwaway whenever dealing with one time transactions.

    You can still use your PayPal account and card though this does not limit you from using PayPal I know that is not helpful but at least there is a option 😊
