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.
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.
Of course the company apologized and got their money back.
