A digital payment service from Google designed to make it easier for customers to make online and traditional in-store purchases. Google Wallet functions in two distinct ways: as a mobile payment service and as an online payment service.
The Google Wallet mobile payment service is available for select Google Android-powered devices. It stores credit and debit card information and then facilitates transactions at stores using near-field communication (NFC), enabling payment by simply touching the mobile device to a store’s PayPass reader. Google Wallet’s online payment service functions separately from the mobile payment service and is designed to securely store customers’ credit and debit card information in order to simplify online purchases for customers.
