Yep. It’s that simple as Google had promised at the I\O event. There’s no need to look up any type of account number. It’s really just a simple click of a button and there you go! Interested in how it works? Frank Young, Commerce Business Development Manager, has let us know how it all works:
Discover securely transmits all required information directly to Google Wallet. You can then select your Discover Card to be the primary method the Google Wallet app will use for in-store purchases, or when shopping online from Google Play or other merchants that accept Google Wallet. You’ll continue to earn rewards on every purchase you make. Discover has also provided Google Wallet with card imagery for the Discover More® Card, so you can easily identify your virtual Discover card in your mobile wallet.
Anyone using Google Wallet? I haven’t been because unfortunately, none of my devices are compatible with it, and as far as I know, no one near me is actually on board with the whole Google Wallet idea. Which is pretty unfortunate as it looks like a cool service. But, of course, I’m not sure how much I like the idea of having my credit card stored on the cloud in someone elses hands when it comes to keeping it secure. That of opinion of course, could be flawed because its Google, you know? The top dogs when it comes to technology, thus they would have to have some pretty solid security, right? Actually, no. Hackers still run ramped, but I’m not sure how many of them would be willing to take on someone like Google. Heck, when it comes to keeping things secure and you mess with, their probably ready to hang you. Okay, maybe not, but it’s a high possibility.
That said, is anyone looking forward to using Google Wallet and the new Discover Card features?
