More about Google’s Digital Wallet Platform
Google Pay is a digital wallet and online payment platform which was developed by Google to help users to make secure online, offline, and local purchases. You can use it to request or send money, and use it at a restaurant or store, but the real reason behind Google Pay is that it’s much more faster and secure than using a traditional debit or credit card.
Local purchases can only be made automatically if the company or shop you are purchasing from, has a card machine that supports the feature – otherwise, the information on your card can still be saved onto your device, and that’s basically all you need to purchase goods. You can also add all of your loyalty cards, movie tickets, event slips, store cards, and public transportation tickets.
The app is simple to download, install, and begin using. It allows users to make contactless payments by using the cellphone number that is linked to Google Pay. Android users also have the ability to make purchases through Google websites such as Google Play, or Chrome Store. The wallet platform only works on Android 5 Lollipop and above, as well as Apple devices running iOS 7 and up.
