Google Pay allows customers to make payments in your website using any credit or debit card saved to their Google Account, including those from Google Play, YouTube, Chrome, or an Android device. Use the Google Pay API to request any credit or debit card stored in your customer’s Google account.
Google Pay is supported on Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Microsoft Edge, Opera, and UCWeb UC browsers.

- Increased conversions: Google Pay delivers frictionless checkout by eliminating the need to type billing and shipping details, increasing conversions by giving shoppers a better way to pay.
