Google makes mobile pay easier

Need to pay the baby sitter? Want to split the tab at lunch with a co-worker? Google has you covered—whether you’re on mobile or desktop.

To use Google Wallet you first have to add a debit card. Then you’re ready to send and receive money with no additional fees.

To send money, simply enter the recipient’s email address or phone number and press ‘send.’ (The recipient will also have to add a debit card account to receive the money.)

If you’re on the receiving end of a payment, you can cash out instantly to your bank account.

Google Wallet is available for both Android and iOS.
