Google Pay plugin for Magento 2
We are pleased to announce the launch of the official Google Pay plugin for Magento 2. The Google Pay plugin can help increase conversions by enabling a simpler and more secure checkout experience in your Magento website. When you integrate with Google Pay, your customers can complete their purchases quickly using the payment methods they’ve securely saved to their Google Accounts.
Google Pay in action.
The Google Pay plugin is built in collaboration with Unbound Commerce, is free to use, and integrates with popular payment service providers including Adyen, BlueSnap, Braintree, FirstData – Payeezy & Ucom, Moneris, Stripe, and Vantiv.
Refer to the Magento Marketplace User Guide for more installation instructions.
To get started with the Google Pay plugin, you will need your Google Pay merchant identifier which can be found in the Google Pay Business Console.
Your Merchant ID can be found in the Google Pay Business Console.
Configuring the Google Pay plugin
Once installed, you can configure the plugin in your site’s Magento administration console by navigating to Stores > Configuration > Sales > Payment Methods and selecting the Configure button next to Google Pay.
Click on the Configure button to start the setup process.
Testing out Google Pay can be achieved in three easy steps:
- Google Pay credentials: enter your Google Pay merchant ID (available from the Google Pay Business Console) and merchant name.
- Payment gateway credentials: select your payment gateway from the list of payment gateways supported by the Google Pay plugin.
- Choose the Sandbox environment for testing purposes.
- Enter your payment gateway’s credentials into their respective form fields.
- Google Pay settings: enable Google Pay and choose the card networks that you would like to accept.
You can optionally try out some of the advanced settings that provide the ability to customize the color and type of Google Pay button as well as enabling Minicart integration, which is recommended.
Checkout the Advanced Settings to further customize how and where the Google Pay button is presented in your store.
If your payment provider isn’t listed as an option in the payment gateway list, check to see if your payment provider’s plugin has built-in support for Google Pay.
Launching Google Pay for your website
When you’ve completed your testing, submit your website integration in the Google Pay Business Console. You will need to provide your website’s URL and screenshots to complete the submission.
Summing it up
Integrating Google Pay into your website is a great way to increase conversions and to improve the purchasing experience for your customers.
