Google's so useful these days. Need spreadsheets or word processing? Use Google's. Need to figure out if "lima beans" is a commonly searched keyword? There's a Google tool for that. What about Donuts? Do you like donuts? You can use Google Wallet with the Dunkin' Donuts app to buy them now. Just select Google Wallet as your payment method when you check out.
Foodies will also appreciate that Google Wallet will be integrated with ChowNow and Seamless, with which you can easily order food from local restaurants. I've used Seamless several times and I love it. It remembers what you've ordered so you can just reorder a meal with the click of a button. When I just want to relax and eat, it's perfect. Now I can be my Googled-reliant self as I order. Wow, I really am reliant on them.
Shopify and Shopgate are also partnering with Google. These two are not aimed at foodies. They allow retailers to easily create online shops and apps with which they sell their goods. You might have reached this page because you already know of these products. If you don't, but you want to learn more, look around here.
The decision to move forward with these partnerships shows that Google believes you (the consumer) believe in them enough to use their payment product. They've also cut a deal with Verizon and AT&T regarding the purchase Softcard's intellectual property, supporting the idea that Google Wallet is ready for mainstream use. Softcard is a Near Field Communication payment software product that is now included on android phones, standard.
