How it works

Google Wallet couldn’t be easier to accept. Your team member rings up a purchase, asks “Cash, credit or Google Wallet?”, and may have to push the terminal’s credit button. The customer enters a PIN on the phone, taps the terminal’s reader with their phone…and that’s it. Done. No change, no hassles.

  • Virtual Cards

    Whether one card or twenty, Google Wallet creates digital versions of credit cards and stores them neatly on consumers’ phones.

  • Wireless Connections

    A Google Wallet enabled phone includes a secure chip and a radio frequency antenna (aka NFC or Near Field Communications). When the phone is tapped against a contactless reader, the phone transmits payment details wirelessly, the consumer receives verification, and no card ever gets swiped.

  • Contactless Readers

    Google Wallet works on a variety of contactless readers, including the First Data FD-30 and FD-20 models (both pictured above). The FD-30 reader offers the most comprehensive solution with a PIN pad that accepts traditional payment forms as well as Google Wallet, MasterCard® PayPass®, and other contactless transactions.

  • Secure Transactions

    Credit cards are stored on a secure chip inside the phone, which is protected by both a PIN and screen lock. The secure encryption technology of MasterCard® PayPass® protects your credit card credentials as they are transferred from the phone to the contactless reader. Together, these security features go beyond what’s possible with traditional cards.
