Earlier this month, Google announced that it will be discontinuing Google Wallet Card. The Wallet Card is not to be confused with Google Wallet. In fact, Google Wallet is Google’s product for peer-to-peer transactions and competes with the likes of Venmo, Square Cash, and PayPal.

Google Wallet is a useful tool for money transactions and it’s as easy as adding an attachment to an email. In the compose window, there is an icon attached to Google Wallet where you can enter your information and begin exchanging money in Gmail.*

  1. Click the dollar sign icon in your Gmail compose window.
  2. This window appears where you can access settings, ask questions, and add your debit card.
  3. Once you’ve entered in your information, you are ready to send and receive money on Gmail.

*Senders and recipients of money on Gmail must both have accounts set up with Google Wallet in order to exchange money.
