Google Wallet

GoogleWallet

The mobile revolution continues to grow exponentially. Millions of Americans no longer need their leather wallets with Google Wallet—a mobile app that securely stores credit cards, offers, gift cards and more on your mobile phone. This virtual wallet is changing the face of commerce by enabling customers to simply make “tap and go” payments with their mobile devices, while increasing loyalty at your merchant locations.

Google, First Data, Citi and MasterCard® brought this latest innovation in commerce to life, and all partners continue to invest heavily for its success. With mobile contactless transactions expected to top 2.2 billion in 2011 and with enhanced functionality on Google Wallet to come (virtual coupons, receipts, tickets, and more), consumers may never go back to traditional payments.

First Data Advantages

First Data powers key parts of Google Wallet. Our Trusted Service Manager (TSM) provides the technology and infrastructure to connect payment cards into Google Wallet. It can easily put your loyalty accounts into this virtual wallet. Built as a service, TSM from First Data is scalable, cost-effective and allows you to integrate once and deploy loyalty accounts multiple times to other virtual wallets.

We also lead the charge on driving the adoption of contactless acceptance, especially with small merchants. You can accept Google Wallet payments using our FD-20 or FD-30 contactless readers. Both options easily integrate into your existing First Data terminal systems.

You can even extend offers to shoppers via Google Wallet that will drive more traffic to your store and increase sales. Customers can also use the Google Prepaid Card, powered by Money Network, which will be in the Google Wallet by default.

Today, your customers have more choice and payment convenience. Google Wallet appeals to higher income, higher spending “early adopter” customers, and younger consumers who do everything mobile and will become tomorrow’s high earners. Shoppers no longer have to fumble with cards, cash and coupons, instead they can use a single payment device—their mobile phone. Now is the time for merchants to go mobile. Soon, Google Wallet will allow merchants to participate even more in the benefits of mobile commerce.
