I always believed adding payment capabilities to Google My Business is a logical step for Google after acquiring Pointy and creating a Google Merchant connection with GMB- not forgetting the Order.app and booking integration.
And to that point Global Payments announced a partnership with Google.
Global Payments released a statement:
“Global Payments and Google will collaborate on product development and innovation to further enhance and differentiate the suite of cloud-based solutions available to merchant customers on Google Cloud. This builds on Global Payments’ competitive advantages as a leading payments technology company globally. As an example of this co-innovation work together, Google’s public APIs (Google Workspace, Google My Business, Google Ads) and other technologies will be integrated with Global Payments’ leading software and payments ecosystem, delivering the full spectrum of solutions that merchants need to run and grow their businesses.“
Is this the sign Google will add payment processing capabilities to GMB listings and Site?
You will have to wait and see.
