Pay With Google, the search giant’s payment system, has gone live!
First introduced in May during Google’s I/O developer conference, Google said in a blog post shoppers “can now speed through online checkout on many of your favorite apps and websites with a few quick clicks.”
Google said back then that Pay With Google would be compatible with and help promote customer loyalty programs.
“When you pay with Google, you can use any of the credit or debit cards you’ve added to your Google Account from products like Google Play, YouTube, Chrome or Android Pay.”
Pay With Google sends the merchant a shopper’s payment info and shipping address using the information from the buyer’s account, with no typing required.
The merchant will then handle all the details just like any other purchase.
Mashable said Pay With Google is like PayPal but powered by Google.
“You’ll be able to speed through checkout on your Android device whether you’re shopping in apps or on the web with Chrome,” Google said.
Partner Payment Providers
Google has partnered with several payment providers “to make integration even simpler.”
The payment providers include Adyen, Braintree, Vantiv, and Stripe.
“They’ll continue to process all your transactions, so you can keep everything moving smoothly.”
More payment providers including ACI Universal Payments, Global Payments, Groupe Paysafe, Tap Pay, and WorldPay will be added to the list.
As reported by TechCrunch, the list of Pay With Google’s supported services includes Doordash, Eat24, Instacart, Kayak, Postmates, Wish and others.
Airbnb, Papa John’s, StubHub will soon be included in the list.
Google, meanwhile, urged developers who have an app or website to go to developer docs to learn how to get started with the Google Payment API.
Developers can implement the Google payment system “with just a few lines of code.”
“And it’s free—we don’t charge any transaction fees,” Google said.
