Google Wallet is proving itself ever more useful these days, expanding its horizons with more businesses that are willing to take your hard earned cash in exchange for their products and services through a series of different mobile apps and websites. While Google Wallet won’t be truly the most useful tool in your app library at the moment as it still lacks plenty of compatibility at the retail cash wrap of many retailers, it is at least lending itself to more businesses for payment through online and mobile, which means you’ll be less and less likely to have to open up your actual wallet and spend some real physical cash or pulling out your credit card.
Today, as part of an expansion of Google Commerce, Google is announcing new businesses that are participating in supporting Google Wallet as a payment standard. Those making their debut starting this week are Dunkin Donuts, and Seamless. Sadly those are the only two new businesses right now but definitely expect more to hop on the train at some point. Most of you are probably familiar with Dunkin Donuts, and even if you’re not the name says it all when it comes to asking yourself what it is they’re in the business of selling. As for Seamless, the name isn’t really self explanatory. Seamless is much like what you’d get with GrubHub or EAT 24, as it’s a food delivery and takeout service that you can use from your Android smartphone or tablet.
It lets you look up restaurants in your local area that support the platform, give their menus a once over, and place the order, pay for the food, and have it delivered or schedule a time to pick it up. Pretty awesome right? It’s now even more awesome that they accept Google Wallet as payment, making the whole process easier. Both Seamless and Dunkin Donuts are joining other businesses like Dominos Pizza, Papa Johns, EAT 24, Panda Express, and Jason’s Deli and even Lyft just to name a few more. If you use Google Wallet and/or either of these two new services or any of the others that support the Google Wallet platform, paying for stuff just became a little simpler and you should see the changes take effect either today or throughout the week.
