eBay is adding Google Pay as a payment option to its Android app, mobile web, and desktop site. The feature is set to roll out in early April. This is the latest step from eBay as part of a breakaway from PayPal since the companies split apart in 2015. Since then, eBay has been trying to offer customers more choices in their payment options. eBay added Apple Pay last year.
Ebay says that the new addition comes as Millennials and Generation Z shoppers are making more purchases from their phones and digital wallets.
The Google Pay option will allow users to check out without leaving the platform, unlike PayPal, which sends users to a different site to finish payment. eBay is looking to manage most of its own payments by 2021
