Google Pay is finally coming to the web for desktop and iOS devices, enabling online shoppers on supported sites to checkout with the service.
Google rolled up its disparate payment programmes, including Android Pay and Google Wallet, into a single brand dubbed Google Pay earlier this year, but, until now, it has been restricted to Android devices.
Now, shoppers using Chrome, Safari and Firefox will start seeing the Google Pay option, no matter their device. And, if they save a card to Google Pay on a Pixelbook, they will be able to use it on the web with another device, like an iPhone.
The move finally brings Google Pay inline with Apple Pay, which has been available as a web payments option for two years, joining PayPal in the fight to make ecommerce payments easier and bring down the number of abandoned shopping carts.
Once a card has been added to Google Pay, users won't need to enter their payment info again — even when checking out in an app or on a site for the first time. And if checking out on Chrome, Google Pay can automatically fill in billing, shipping, and payment info.
