Zip & Google Pay team to boost flexible payment options at checkout
By Delisha Fernandes
Zip, an Australia-based BNPL provider has partnered with Google Pay in order to offer flexible payment options at checkout for merchants and customers in the US.
This integration, scheduled for a pilot launch in January 2024, comes as Buy Now, Pay Later (BNPL) adoption is on the rise, offering consumers enhanced flexibility in their payment choices at checkout.
Zip products stand out as modern and convenient payment solutions, proven to boost checkout conversion rates and increase average cart sizes for merchants. This new feature, coming soon to select merchant Android apps that offer Google Pay for checkout or when shopping on select merchant sites from an Android device, will be available to merchants at no additional integration.
Zip Co-founder and U.S. CEO Larry Diamond, said, “With Zip available in the Google Pay checkout experience, we are bridging a gap and providing a flexible credit product for the many consumers overlooked by traditional credit products. By offering Zip payment solutions through Google Pay, we’re empowering consumers with more choices while providing merchants with a powerful tool to increase conversion rates and build lasting customer relationships.”
This collaboration meets the evolving needs of consumers and merchants alike. As flexible payment options continue to gain traction, BNPL has emerged as a crucial financial management tool for consumers, but also a proven way for merchants to increase order value, attract new customers, and foster customer loyalty.
“We are always looking for ways to give people a more helpful checkout experience when shopping on Google,” said Drew Olson, Senior Director, Google Pay. “By teaming up with BNPL providers like Zip, we are able to give Google Pay users another payment option when checking out, while providing merchants with another tool to drive their growth.”
