According to Google’s Pali Bhat, vice president of product management for Payments, the search giant has been working to streamline payments over the past year. This has been achieved with Google Pay, which is already available on Airbnb, Dice, Fandango, HungryHouse, Instacart, and other apps and websites, as well as at some retail outlets with NFC payments.
“With Google Pay, it’ll be easier for you to use the payment information saved to your Google Account, so you can speed through checkout with peace of mind,” Bhat wrote in a post announcing Google Pay on the company’s official blog. “Over the coming weeks, you’ll see Google Pay online, in store, and across Google products, as well as when you’re paying friends.”One Payment Solution to Rule Them All
