Chrome 70 to Require Google Pay for Browser Credit Card Information –
Google has announced a change that will impact how Chrome or Google account stored credit card information is accessed for online payments. Beginning in Chrome 70, Google is requiring sites to link the PaymentRequests API to Google Pay to access this information. This is due to Google moving to the standards based Payment Handler API in Chrome 68, which was just released this week. That API allows browsers to link with digital payment providers, which Google now supports through Chrome and Google Pay. With the announcement, it means that developers and sites will need to be updated by October 16th.
