Discover announced today that it is partnering with Google to allow cardmembers to save their credit card directly into Google Wallet by logging into the online Account Center at discover.com/googlewallet.
This will give Discover cardmembers the ability to tap and pay for purchases in-store in conjunction with the Google Wallet application on a compatible Near Field Communication (NFC) smartphone, as well as make purchases online, for a simpler, more convenient shopping experience. Cardmembers using Google Wallet to pay for items with their Discover card will continue to earn Cashback Bonus® rewards.
Paying with a smartphone is growing. According to InformationWeek
Mobile payment technology is an area of intense competition at the moment, despite lack of consumer interest or perhaps because of it--there's no dominant player. Startups, technology companies, financial companies, and telecom companies are all racing to popularize their way to make electronic payments with mobile devices.
Do you see yourself paying with a smartphone in the future?
