Google Pay distributed cash by mistake

Here's a good reason to use Google Pay: Google can send you money.

Many users they mention that Google mistakenly deposited cash into their accounts – anywhere from $10 to $1.000.

Ο researcher Mishaal Rahman saw the error happening on his account and shared the details on Twitter.gpay

The cash came through Google Pay's "rewards" program.

Just like a credit card, which gives bonuses after your purchases, Google also started handing out money.

Several screenshots show users receiving a lot of money as a “Reward” with a description message that said “dogfooding the Google Pay Remittance experience.” “Dogfooding” is a technical term for “internal beta testing pre-release software”, so the money the company was handing out should have gone to Google employees and/or certain testing partners.

However, too many ordinary users received this message as well as the wrong payments.6

Of course the company apologized and got their money back.
