'Pay with Google' makes online shopping quicker and easier

Use the Google Payment API to request any credit or debit card stored in your customer's Google account, including their Android Pay credentials.

"If you've ever paid for something on your phone or tablet, you know just how frustrating checkout can be", Pali Bhat, Google vice president of payments product management, wrote in a blog post. Instead, Google sends the merchant your payment details and shipping address from your account, making it all much more simple.

Places such as iFood in Brazil, Dice in the United Kingdom, and Kayak in the USA have started supporting the new checkouts development.

Since Pay with Google relies on the Google Payment API, vendors have to implement it on their websites before you can use it.

Google has pushed hard for web sites to use encryption to secure web traffic, urging sites to use HTTPS - secure hyper-text transport protocol - over plain HTTP to transmit web pages to users. All the information is fetched from your Google account which saves you from typing this information every time you checkout on a new website or app.

However, big names like Deliveroo, Just Eat, Airbnb, and HotelTonight are working with Google, too, and are listed in the official page as "coming soon". On top of that, it's free, as Google doesn't charge any transaction fees.

The API enables online payments via a variety of Google services, including Google Play, YouTube, Chrome, and Android Pay.

Google first announced the feature at its I/O event in May this year.

Google has partnered with a selection of popular payment providers, with more to come in the future.

Despite the fact that services like Apple Pay and Android Pay make mobile checkout a brick and mortar stores a breeze, paying online using your mobile device can still be something of a headache.
