PayPal and Google deepened their relationship with a new agreement that enables payments through the tap of a phone from PayPal accounts at thousands of new retail locations.
The partnership lets PayPal users link their accounts to Android Pay, Google’s digital wallet, on smartphones running most versions of the Android operating system.
PayPal CEO Dan Schulman has been busy cutting deals with banks, credit card issuers and wireless carriers to convert PayPal from a payments button on websites into a versatile financial tool used to make payments in stores, transfer money overseas and shop from smartphones on the go.
Aunkur Arya, Senior Vice President, PayPal unit Braintree, said, "This is the next logical step in our desire to partner with everyone in the ecosystem. These partnerships don’t happen unless there’s value for both sides."
The stronger relationship between Google and PayPal could rekindle speculation about an acquisition.
The PayPal deal may boost Google’s mobile payments efforts, which have progressed in fits and starts.
