Google Wallet is a way to make payments and move money through your smartphone. It’s completely free, and it can store credit card information (debit card), debit-credit balances (credit card), gift cards (gift card) and loyalty cards. You need a newer Android or Apple phone in order to use Google Wallet, but once you do, it will be another quick way to pay at e-commerce stores that take it.
Google Wallet is able to add VISA or MasterCard to make payments. You can also use Google Wallet All over as long as it’s supported by your bank.
