2015 Google Wallet integrates with Shopify and other merchant platforms


Google Wallet mobile payment system is adding some key integrations with merchants and merchant platforms. Customers that use Android apps from Dunkin’ Donuts and Seamless, and merchants that build online stores through Shopify, will now all be able to access Google Wallet to make and accept quick payments. In November Google Wallet was also integrated with Papa John’s Android app, as well as merchant platforms ChowNow and Shopgate. But overall it has been a relatively slow rollout for Google Wallet: before today, there were only around 30 mobile sites and 30 apps integrated with the product. To date, the payment services of Google Wallet are restricted to U.S. users and businesses only, although the company has now started to extend the ability to transfer money, another aspect of Wallet, to international markets, opening it up to Gmail users in the UK.
