Google to present payment tools via Google Pay

Google is to present its different payment tools to consumers under a new brand called Google Pay.

When you make a purchase from Google, or from partner apps and stores Airbnb, Dice, Fandango, Instacart and HungryHouse, you will see Google Pay as an option.

In a Google blog post, vice president of product management for payments Pali Bhat, wrote: “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.

‘Speed through checkout’

“Over the coming weeks, you’ll see Google Pay online, in-store, and across Google products, as well as when you’re paying friends.”

Mark Young, Fandango’s senior vice president of global strategy and business development, said in a press release: “Google Pay provides a simple, intuitive option for Fandango customers to speed through checkout with just one tap.

“We look forward to working with Google as they grow this exciting new payment platform.”

Google is also offering discounts when you buy something via Google Pay from Fandango and Instacart to promote the launch.
