Google Wallet is a fast, free way to send money through the app, in Gmail, or on the web at wallet.google.com. You can send money to someone using just their email address or phone number — they don't need to have the Wallet app.
Whether you’re splitting a bill, buying a group gift, or planning a trip with friends, requesting money with Google Wallet is an easy way to track who still needs to pay you back.
You can also use Google Wallet for occasional commercial transactions, like collecting rent or accepting payments for services. Just make sure you have the commercial payments setting turned on. Learn more.
All your financial information in Google Wallet is encrypted and stored on Google’s protected servers in secure locations. If needed, you can quickly remove access to your account on any device at myaccount.google.com.
Google Wallet comes with 24/7 fraud monitoring and covers 100% of all verified unauthorized transactions.
