The technological advancement has truly reached a new height with the release of Google Wallet. As always and ever, technological gurus at Google are always innovating something or the other that is perhaps beyond imagination. One such latest innovation of Google itself is the Google Wallet. Hardly could you imagine mobile shopping and mobile payment but with Google Wallet it is practically possible. Google Wallet is perhaps a mobile payment system developed by Google in which you can store the credentials of your existing plastic cards. For the time being Google Wallet goes sync with Citi Master card and Google prepaid card, and hopefully in the near future, Google wallet will be able to store virtual forms of most of the widely used plastic cards and also offers and coupons will be feasible with it that are only available in physical forms until now. Google Wallet is a free mobile application that is currently available only in the higher android versions of Nexus S 4G by Google which is available on Sprint. Therefore you can carry the plastic cards virtually in your mobile wallet instead of your leather wallet- isn’t that amazing!
Google Wallet has an easy to follow interface. It uses NFC, to be precise near field communication for making payment securely and conveniently and faster than anything else. For making a payment, you only need to tap your Google Wallet enabled mobile phone on any pass pay enabled terminal at checkout. Setting up a City Master Card with Google wallet is very easy; you just need to enter your account information in your Google Wallet and after it is verified from Citi, your credit card credentials are stored within a microchip of your phone. Thereafter you can tap your phone and make your payment. You can also use Google wallet with your existing Google prepaid card which is absolutely virtual. The Google Prepaid Card which is powered by MasterCard and Money Network gives you an added advantage, an amount of $10 is credited into your Google wallet as a welcome amount, which is only a limited period promotional offer.
