Google Pay vs. Google Wallet: What's Different?

Posted on Jun 01, 2018
There wasn’t a whole lot of fanfare surrounding the 2011 launch of Google Wallet — a mobile payment technology that allowed users to shop in stores or send money to friends and family members.  For starters, PayPal had already cornered the peer-to-peer (P2P) payment market, leaving little room for Google’s new service.

Posted on Jan 02, 2018

You could use your JCPenney card at most stores — but using it specifically at JCPenney allowed you to rack up certain discounts and loyalty points.  These types of cards still exist — and probably won’t go away anytime soon.  However, big-box retailers are increasingly exploring a new payment option — i.e., mobile wallets that are directly tied to branded smartphone apps.  From Kohl’s Wallet to Walmart Pay to Target Wallet, each store uses a slightly different name — but the basic functionality remains the same:
