PayPal users will soon be able to dip into their accounts to pay for purchases within a range of Google services, starting later this year.
The expansion of the partnership between PayPal and Google Pay will enable payments to be made in YouTube Gmail, Google Play and a range of other Big G services.
If you add PayPal to Google Play, it’ll automatically become a payment option within other Google platforms where you might be making payments.
You’ll also be able to use a PayPal balance for partial payment, alongside a credit or debit card. The integration will also include peer-to-peer transfers.

The company writes in a blog post: “When a user adds PayPal to their Google Play account, it will automatically enable their linked PayPal account and make it available as a payment option across popular Google services like Gmail, YouTube, Google Pay and Google Store, including where Google offers peer-to-peer payments, without the user needing to log in again.”
For users, this will mean one less sign-in will be needed to complete a transaction. For Google, it means it may be able to keep shoppers on their sites without leaving to complete a transaction.
