Google is going to discontinue peer-to-peer payment service from its digital payment platform Google Pay. This service will be discontinued from January 2021. The company will add an instant money transfer payment system in lieu of this service, but users will have to pay a charge for this. According to media reports, the company has not yet shared any information regarding these charges.
Currently, users are able to transfer money with the help of both Google Pay app and pay.google.com platforms. In such a situation, Google has now issued a notice to the users informing them that its web payment service will not work from January next year. “From the beginning of 2021, users will not be able to send or receive money by visiting the pay.google.com platform. They will have to use the Google Pay app to transfer money,” he said.
