How to link your PayPal account to your Google Pay account on an iPhone or Android

Saving your payment details on your smartphone can be a good way to save time and avoid the hassle of finding your credit card every time you want to pay for something.

If you use Google Pay and want more ways to pay, adding your PayPal account can also be a good option.

There are a few other advantages of doing so, too. For example, you can rent and buy movies on YouTube without having to add your payment details, or use your PayPal funds to pay for things like YouTube Premium. 

How to add PayPal to your Google Pay account:

  1. Open the Google Pay app on your Android device or iPhone .
  2. Toggle over to the “Payment” tab.

3. Tap the blue “+ Payment Method” button.

4. Tap “PayPal.”

5. Enter your PayPal email address (your phone number should autofill, but update it if your PayPal account is now associated with another number).

6. Tap “Allow” to confirm your PayPal information.

7. Tap “Accept” to add PayPal to your Google Pay account.
