Google Pay with Adyen Enables Shoppers to Make Secure Online Payments

Google Pay with Adyen enables shoppers “to securely pay online and in-person using the cards stored in the Google account.”

The integration is described as being “secure (supporting 3DS), ubiquitous (multiple currencies across many countries) and effortless.”

Adyen has partnered with Google “for quite some time to make sure developers can easily plugin Google Pay in their applications, being a web site, a native Android application or a third-party system using APIs.”

In a recent update, the payments Fintech company explores a new way “to use GooglePay with Adyen: the Google Pay Firebase extension.”

Firebase is a “backend as a service” platform that “enables developers to create web and mobile applications without worrying about configuring and managing backend databases or storage, but instead plugging in each service via its own dedicated APIs.”

The available services “include databases, cloud storage, serverless functions, authentication and messaging, all supported by a comprehensive toolset (FireBase console, Command-line interface, Testlab).”

Cloud Firestore is “a NoSQL database part of the Firebase platform: it is designed to support complex JSON-based data structure, advanced querying and multiple languages (NodeJS, Python and Java SDKs).”

Firestore really stands out “when used together with Cloud Functions that allow executing server-side code in response to events like changes in the database or other types of notifications.”

The “Make payments with Google Pay” Firebase extension is “a plugin designed to enable the integration with your preferred Payment Service Provider (Adyen of course): this integration takes place via Firestore where payment requests are created and processed.” Once a request is saved in a predefined path (collection of documents), “the very same document is updated with the payment outcome (authorization or an error maybe).”

The communication with Adyen is, “once properly configured, transparent to the application which only interacts with the Firebase platform.”

According to the update, the “Make Payments with Google Pay” extension “can significantly simplify the integration with the Adyen platform for applications and services running on Firebase.”

Firebase serverless architecture, its multi-platform SDKs and vast documentation “make it suitable for both small and large projects.” The communication with Adyen is “provided by the extension without the need for the developers to develop, test or integrate the interaction with the Adyen backend.”

In this initial version the standard payment workflow (Google Pay with cards and other payment methods) is offered, but in the future Adyen said it would “look at more advanced use cases like recurring payments or reversals.”
