If you need to move money using ACH then Dwolla is the number 1 choice. Highly recommend. We shopped several potential partners and Dwolla was better across the board. I count the Dwolla team and my team - they're always there to help and always go above and beyond to help us.

I have only scratched the surface of Google Pay's capabilities because we do not have a physical store. I believe the benefits would increase for locations where smartphone payment is already underway in physical stores that also do online sales. If your business deals with very little foot traffic or does not offer a variety of payment choices, do more research before adding Google Pay as an option — Google Pay is an eager competitor to Apple Pay, and therefore offers businesses opportunities to run promotions and other incentives to adopt Google Pay currently, so it still may be worthwhile to smaller businesses. Google Pay is about to implement a banking option, which will likely add to the number of users and therefore excited customers with Google Pay to spend with you. The web implementation seems simple and should be a good addition to websites where multiple payment types are available.

Cons
Dwolla
No answers on this topic
Google
  • It would be helpful if Google Pay could sync with things like Apple Pay so that saved payment methods can be automatically imported
  • There are certain times when Google Pay grants offers for cash back at merchants but the transfer time on the cash back is something like 30 days, which is a long time to wait
  • Google Pay could also integrate with other credit card and bank apps to add stored payment methods from there

I have had no direct experience with the Customer Support team for google pay. I never faced any issues or problems. I heard from other friends and colleagues that the customer service is great. This method of payment is now more and more being used as it is more secure and also at the same time fast and easy.

GooglePay appears similar but the seller charges no commission. On the downside, there is also no payment protection. So if a transaction goes wrong and it is paid directly from a bank account or via a debit card then you have no buyer protection. This is a significant risk when using GooglePay. PayPal has its own buyer protection.

Return on Investment
Dwolla
  • Without Dwolla, we would have to invest a lot more of our company resources and time into accomplishing something that can take as little as 15 minutes. Dwolla's integration is almost invaluable to us.
