To attract the millennial customers, eBay decides to introduce more payment options, which can improve customers' shopping experiences. eBay recently announced that shoppers will soon be able to choose Google Pay as their payment method when checking out. The move comes as the latest expansion of its newly redesigned payments experience.
eBay already accepts Apple Pay, and is adding Google Pay as part of a larger plan to simplify the customer experience and streamline seller costs by managing a majority of payments on its own platform by 2021. Digital payment services like Google Pay and Apple Pay enable eBay shoppers to check out without leaving the eBay platform. Shoppers who prefer to use Google Pay will be able to do so within the eBay app, mobile website and desktop site, regardless of operating system or device.
"We believe the future of shopping includes a world of buyers who prefer mobile payments and the convenience of digital wallets, unconstrained by platforms and systems," Alyssa Cutright, eBay VP of global payments said in the blog post.
"We're thinking of millennials who are leading the way with higher adoption rates of mobile payments…The opportunity is even clearer when we look at the emergence of Generation Z, which studies suggest is looking forward to making more and more transactions on mobile."
"Google Pay provides users with a fast, simple and secure way to pay online. Offering Google Pay as a form of payment is another significant step toward providing our customers with more choice in their payment options, and creating an experience that is tailored to personal preferences. " Alyssa added.
Android users expecting for Google Pay on eBay will have to wait a bit. The rollout officially starts in April.
