Ionic React Google Pay issue

Hey everyone,

I’ve been using a square react plugin for some time now without any issues.

However, I’m trying to implement the same plugin into a Ionic Hybrid app and I can get the credit card to function as expected, but the Google Pay button doesn’t work as expected.

When I click the “Pay with Google Pay” button, it opens a new browser (outside of the webview app) and asks me to login. Once I confirm the card I get a “Unknown Developer error” and when I click retry it tries to redirect to a localhost url.

I’m assuming the issue lies within the app opening a new browser instead of opening a window within the webview (‘like my functioning webview app does’) but i’m unsure of how to prevent the Google Pay button from opening a new window.

I understand this is not really a Square issue but maybe someone has come across this before or might know a fix…
