The major update to Google Wallet doubles its usage

by: Costea LestocSeptember 14, 2012
Institutions such as Barclaycard US, Green Dot and Silicon Valley Bank have already implemented Google Wallet for their customers. It is expected for many others to follow suit. The fact that the implementation would be free for any potential banking partners make Google Wallet a very lucrative market to go into as well.

Google Wallet Discontinues Prepaid Cards, Refunds Coming Soon

by: Derek RossSeptember 10, 2012

Today, Google announced that they soon will be discontinuing their Prepaid Card program. Since the latest versions of Google Wallet enabled users to add any debit or credit card, the need for Google’s prepaid card has diminished. As a result, starting September 17th, you will no longer be able to add funds to your existing Google Prepaid Card or add a new Prepaid Card to a new Google Wallet device. Come October 17th, the Google Prepaid Card will automatically be removed from the Google Wallet app. Have no fear, if you happen to have funds left on your Prepaid Card, you’ll be able to request a refund.

Additionally, Google Wallet now has new terms and [...]

ISIS coming in September to Galaxy S3, Galaxy S2, HTC One X, Amaze 4G, Droid Incredible 4G LTE

by: Chris SmithAugust 28, 2012

Earlier today we heard that T-Mobile has made available an Ice Cream Sandwich build for its Galaxy S2 version that enables NFC/ISIS features on the handset and at the time we wondered when will ISIS be available on the handset given that the three main U.S. carriers backing the Google Wallet mobile payment rival have not officially announced its availability.

It now looks like we have confirmation that the ISIS mobile payment project developed by Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile will be available to interested consumers in September. According to CNET, Doug Bergeron, CEO of Verifone, “which makes the payment terminals that most mobile payment [...]

T-Mobile Galaxy S2 Ice Cream Sandwich update also brings NFC/ISIS support

by: Chris SmithAugust 28, 2012

While we keep talking about Google Wallet mobile payment features, that are available only on NFC-ready devices, the fact remains that Google is not the only company out there interested in getting into the mobile payment business.

Three of the main four U.S. carriers – Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile – have joined forces to create the ISIS venture, a mobile platform of their own that would compete directly with Google Wallet, which explains why some NFC-enabled Android handsets do not support Google Wallet on these carriers. On top of that, there are also plenty of other mobile payment initiatives out there that are just getting [...]

Google wants you to leave your wallet at home

by: J. Angelo RacomaAugust 28, 2012
Google wants to differentiate itself by going beyond payments, which is exactly why the search and mobile giant wants users to eventually leave their wallets at home. In the future, our Android devices (or smartphones from other platforms) will be the central point of all our payments, transactions and identification.

Google Wallet cranks up the advertising machine

by: nathanAugust 22, 2012
Paypal took the world by storm years ago and hasn't decreased its dominance ever since. A handful of players have entered 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.

Google Wallet now works on Verizon Galaxy Nexus, lets you add any credit cards

by: Bams SadewoAugust 3, 2012

Even though the Galaxy Nexus is meant to be a pure Google device, Verizon couldn’t help putting some extra touches, including preventing the Google Wallet from running on the phone. It didn’t exactly stop creative folks from coming up with a workaround, though. However, the days of tinkering are over, as Google Wallet is now officially compatible with Verizon Galaxy Nexus.

Several users have reported that they have successfully downloaded and installed Google Wallet on their Verizon Galaxy Nexus – without any tinkering. So if you happen to do a search on the app at Google Play, you should no longer see the Verizon Galaxy Nexus listed as [...]

Google Wallet can now add any credit card or debit card

by: LucianAugust 1, 2012

Google Wallet promised to replace physical wallets with a virtual wallet that can be accessed from your Android phone. However, the momentum has been slow in the U.S. because carriers are trying their best to avoid using it on the handsets they sell, because they are preparing their own competing solution called Isis. The only carriers in the U.S. that have been friendly to Google Wallet are Sprint and Virgin Mobile, which have adopted a total of six Google Wallet-enabled phones. The Nexus 7 tablet also comes with Google Wallet support.

Google Wallet has also experienced some security issues initially, and Verizon has even claimed that the [...]

Verizon Galaxy S3 does run Google Wallet via hack [video]

by: Chris SmithJuly 31, 2012

Google Wallet is Google’s own NFC-based mobile payment system, which should have taken off by now, at least according to the Search giant’s wishes. However, that’s not exactly the case, and Google is still struggling to make the payment method popular with the crowds.

It definitely doesn’t help to have to fight against three of the four main U.S. mobile operators – Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile – which are working on their own mobile payment operation called ISIS. That means Android handsets launched by these three carriers do not come with Google Wallet on board, which is quite a hassle for Android users that want to use the [...]
