Google Wallet to reportedly now has your money FDIC-insured

Unless you're the sort of person that would read all the user agreements before clicking I Accept (which technically we all should do but oftentimes, it's TLDR), then you probably didn't know that the money you store on mobile payment services like Paypal, Venmo, and Google Wallet are not FDIC-insured. This means that if any of those apps or businesses close down, it would take you a whole, long process before you can recover your money. But Google is reportedly changing their policy, making your money with them more secure.

ChowNow adds Google Wallet to payment options in the app

If you're the type of person who'd rather order take-out from restaurants instead of braving it out in overcrowded dining places or even if you're too tired to cook for yourself or your family, the advent of apps to help you have food delivered to your home is probably a blessing. ChowNow is one of those apps that will get your food to you and their new partnership with Google will make life even easier for you.

Google confirms Android Pay framework, MVNO network

Google announcements at major tech events are always worth noting, and at this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, they made some major announcements that may not have been the "sexiest" but will definitely have a major impact on not just users but OEMs and their future partners as well. Google's Sundar Pichai confirmed several things, including the setting up of an Android Pay framework as well as the possibility of their own MVNO network.

Google Wallet partners with Softcard and other mobile carriers

Ever since the tap and pay feature for Google Wallet was introduced almost four years ago, mobile payments and e-commerce have improved immensely. With the Google Wallet app on Android device, anyone can make e-payments by simply tapping the phone as long as NFC payment is allowed. Samsung may be ready to take on Google Wallet by acquiring LoopPay but the Mountain View company continues to also improve its system by partnering with the biggest innovators in the mobile industry.

Google Wallet to be accepted at Disneyland Orlando starting Dec 24

Families who are planning to go to Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando this Christmas break will now have another option to pay for their tickets and souvenir items as they announced that Google Wallet will finally be accepted as a mode of payment starting December 24. This will also pave the way for the system to be applied to other Disney properties, but at a later date.

Samsung working out deal to compete with Apple Pay

The relatively warm acceptance of Apple Pay – Apple’s wireless payment system that allows owners of the latest iPhone models to wave their smartphone instead of swiping your card to pay – has probably forced Samsung to look for a competing system using its own line of smartphones. The South Korean gadget giant is reportedly in talks with US payments startup LoopPay to make this happen.

Google now allows paid applications from Chinese developers

Some Chinese developers haven't fully optimized their apps on Google Play because the Internet giant has not allowed them to list their paid apps. But that will soon change as Google finally allowed the Chinese geeks to offer paid apps and in-app purchases to more than 130 countries. Just recently, Google added more countries with Developer and Google Wallet Merchant registrations. It's finally coming to China which means developers can start selling their apps to majority of the Android users spread out in 130 countries.

Google to pay you for giving money through Google Wallet

What Google Wallet is still alive? You can be forgiven for asking that question as this particular product stagnated for some time now. But now that Apple Pay is (trying to) make waves in the payment through NFC market,then Google is reviving the product and is even willing to pay you when you use the service to give money to other people. What they're really after is to increase number of users, so if you're reluctant to give your information to Google in exchange for a little cash, then maybe this isn't for you.
