Hi there, I've been trying to use Google Pay with the Paypal (not the cashback card option) to try to get the new 3% cashback option with the Paypal cashback card.
From what I understand the cashback card needs to have the transaction done via Paypal as well as the cashback card to get the 3% cashback option. So I set up Google Pay with Paypal and made the default in-store and online transaction preferences go to the Paypal cashback card. Mind you, the options that I was changing for that to happen was on the Paypal app itself, not the Google Pay app options. I don't think I've seen an option related to that.
So, I went to the Grocery, picked out some items, used the Google Pay app/paypal option. It went through and most of it was fine. However, the money was taken from my bank account, not the cashback card and didn't appear as a transaction on my credit card statement with the Paypal cashback card. So I'm wondering if there's an option I'm missing to force it to use the cashback card instead of the bank account...or if there's just no way to make this happen how I want it to. Thanks!
Anyone try it out? I know it's a pretty new option
Welcome back! Thanks for visiting the PayPal Community again. I believe Google Pay is set up as a Billing Agreement with PayPal. With that in mind, you'll want to see if you can set the Cashback Mastercard as that Billing Agreement's Preferred Funding Source. Also, here are the Cashback Reward FAQ's, just in case you need them for the future.
I hope that helps!

That doesn't appear to be the case currently. I guess since I made a payment using that method, it might appear there in the future. Thanks for the advice! I'll have to see if it's available later.
