Google Pay?

Hello,
Is there a way to enable Google pay as a payment option? Isn't it free (no processing fees) for debit cards?
I see in my Braintree account that I can enable it, but how to enable it here and should it be in my case through Braintree or a desperate payment method?
Thank you,
Ella

I don't believe we have a way to integrate with Google Pay right now. Can you send a link to the info in Braintree about Google Pay?

In Braintree I can enable it as one of accepted payment methods, just as with which credit card to accept... Hope that helps?

Ahh, good info to have. We may look into it at some point -- it'd be sweet to let folks with Android phones be able to do a one-button reservation process instead of entering each piece of info.

However, it looks like it doesn't change fees at all. From the article:

"There are no additional standard fees for processing Google Pay transactions – pricing for Google Pay is the same as your other credit card transactions."

So they don't charge extra for Google Pay, but you still pay the same rate you pay for any other Braintree credit card transaction.

How about enabling Google Pay on it's own? (bypassing Braintree or other processors). This would be sweet. Google does not charge any fees for sending/receiving $ . Valid Debit Card, Bank Account or Google pay balance is all that's needed. AND at that point, we can discount as we don't have processing fees! Better than sending a check, payment is instant! :)
Please consider/update :)

I believe Google Pay might have their own info on implementing that OwnerRez could use.

That might be interesting to have Google Pay, Apple Pay and everything else available.

Not only saving the card fee, but probably harder for the guest to do a chargeback!

The old "Google Wallet" product was something we were going to add, as another version of PayPal you could accept, but the Google Wallet terms specifically forbid lodging/vacation rental type business. So we never moved forward since VR users would end up having it turned off by Google. I dunno if Google Pay has the same requirements, but I bet it does.

I'm not sure if it does, but you can select rentals as one of the categories on Google Play if you would like to select in settings that you occasionally accept business payments. Which is the setting that I currently use. I haven't looked any deeper...
