Google is combining its payments ecosystem into one service called Google Pay

Google, in all its infinite wisdom, is yet to come up with a single, unified platform for payments.

Instead of having two different payment methods, Google decided it was time to combine both Android Pay and Google Wallet into one service. Through Google Pay, it is possible to send and receive money from/to your friends/colleagues/family apart from shopping payments.

Google's issues with fragmentation aren't limited to its Android operating system.


Existing users of both services will be able to "speed through checkout with peace of mind", according to a January 8 announcement, by making it easier for them to use payment information saved on their Google Account.

With this new system, your payment information will be saved in your Google account and will then be available to use everywhere you use Google products. By the way, you should begin seeing the Google Pay logo pop up at numerous brick and mortar stores in the coming weeks. Lastly, Instacart orders of at least $35 completed with Google Pay by January 16 score $10 markdowns. Starting today, Android Pay and Google Wallet will henceforth be combined into the all-encompassing Google Pay.

Google has announced it's creating a more unified way of paying for things online and in-store. The Mountain View-based company says that a number of merchants already support this feature, including Airbnb, Dice, Fandango, HungryHouse, and Instacart. Over the past couple of years this payment service reached the UK, Singapore, Hong Kong, Poland, Russia and Canada among many other countries.
