‘Pay with Google’ arrives on Android to fasten the checkout process

By : |October 24, 2017 0

Google has officially rolled out its new feature Pay with Google to speed up the checkout process. The feature lets you use any of the credit or debit cards you’ve previously logged on the web titan’s products (like Chrome, Android Pay, YouTube, or Google Play) to check out in just a few clicks — verifying your purchase with a security code or your Android device.

Pali Bhat, VP of Product Management, Payments, explains in the official blog that the feature allows people to pay in-app or online with a verified credit or debit card that has been saved to their Google account, via products like Google Play, Chrome, and YouTube. In order to make payments using Pay with Google feature, simply choose your preferred card from your saved cards list, enter a security code or authenticate with your Android device, and check out. She said, “Our goal is to enable users to pay with their Google account across devices, platforms, and interfaces.”

With the new feature, you don’t need to fill up multiple forms for processing the payment.

As part of the launch, the feature can be used in the Android app on Chrome browser at select places in the US such as Dice, Hotel Urbano, Spot Hero and DoorDash. Soon other places including Airbnb, Papa John’s, and Just Eat will start supporting Pay with Google.

Google says it doesn’t charge any transaction fee for its use and requires “only a few lines of code” to implement. The feature also works with Google Assistant, so you can simply instruct the assistant to pay ‘X’ amount to people from your friends’ list and it will ask you for authentication. Once you do so, the said amount will be instantly transferred.
