The leading payments platform, PayPal just launched their famous seamless payment experience named OneTouch in India. Powered by Google’s smart lock, it lets the Indian Android smartphone users stay logged into PayPal to speed up the payments. This feature is known for is time-saving character and it avoids the hassle of logging in each time to execute any payments. However, all other security measures and authentications are still there to ensure the maximum security for the users.
Speaking at the launch, Narsi Subramanian, Director, Growth, PayPal India stated, “As payment
systems evolve, it is essential for the platforms to simplify the process and render better user
experiences for consumers while paying online. At the same time, it is critical that customers feel
secure in making their transactions as well. The One Touch feature along with Google Smart Lock
addresses both of the above and aligns with our vision of offering a frictionless payments experience.”
The Government of India recently started giving more priority to digital payments and other internet-based services. So it led PayPal to partner with Government and state-owned banks on a number of initiatives including digital financial literacy programme and eTourist Visa (eTV). With today’s launch, India becomes the first country to have the PayPal OneTouch experience connected with Google smart lock.
