Google Wallet now lets you send money as an attachment in Gmail


quote:

Email attachments have been limited to files forever, but now Google is rolling out a feature in Gmail that lets you attach money. Using Google Wallet, a new button ($) in the Gmail compose window will allow you to easily send money as a gift or repayment. On the back end its the same as the money exchange system offered within Google Wallet, which means it's free if transfered from a bank account.

The sender will have to pay a 2.9% fee per transaction (minimum $0.30) if using a credit or debit card. Money can be sent to people who don't have a Gmail or Wallet account, though the recipient will need to sign up for Wallet to accept money. Once someone receives money, they can deposit it to a bank account or use it anywhere Wallet is accepted.

While Google has offered money transfers for some time, the update gives the feature prime real estate in Gmail — making it likely that it'll grab some business from competitors like PayPal. Google says the feature will be making its way into Gmail for users over 18 years old over the next few months.

I do this with PayPal all the time. So easy to pay people in other cities for things. If they make a Google Wallet app that doesn't charge a fee for using credit cards, then it will be incredible.

Every time our group of friends tries to plan something there's always that one friend who doesn't have Paypal, makes me wanna drown puppies chasing him down for a damn hard copy check.

Venmo is the best way to do this now. No transaction fees and can be done by phone app.

Not entirely true any more I Don't think. Charges for credit cards and a limit of $500 over lifetime of account or something like that.
