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.
