    Paypal took the world by storm years ago and hasn’t decreased its dominance ever since. A handful of players have entered ┬á the mobile payment game, but Google Wallet has been the only one that’s really threatened to be competition. With the advent of new mobile payment apps now becoming a hot convenience item, the big G-Dub is certainly paying its cards right.

    To Google’s advantage, there is still a vast majority of people that don’t about it, or mobile payments methods in general. Google stands to gain a lot of business in this sector if the videos below do their job correctly. That job,┬áspecifically, is to entertain alongside educating the teeming masses about their payment system.

    Watch these three short videos for more information on Google Wallet and, if you’re convinced, give it a try. Don’t forget to come back and tell us how it goes!

      Just started using NFC (had it for some time but now seeing NFC at the register more often nowadays so I started using it).

      It’s a great feature. No need for receipt, no need to punch in any numbers or sign anything. It’s very convenient and saves a lot of time in the long run. Once iPhone 5 comes out NFC will be ubiquitous all over the country. I’m looking forward to just using my phone for everyday purchases in the near future.
