Visa, American Express and Discover Card sign on for Google Wallet
Google lands Visa, American Express and Discover Card for Google Wallet
We knew Google Wallet was launching, but the big news today is that Google has reached deals with Visa, American Express and Discover Card who will be joining MasterCard on the Google Wallet platform. Ironically the Visa press release hit 15 minutes before the official Sprint release hit our inbox. Below we have the Visa payWave press release for your viewing pleasure, but in essence Google Wallet agreement extends Google Wallet to Visa account holders worldwide. What isn’t clear is whether this is the beginning of Google taking Google Wallet and Google Offers platform planet wide, or if it just means that Google Wallet customers can use payWave merchants who are equipped with contactless NFC POS terminals on a global basis.
