Google recently announced their update for Gmail that allows you to send money to your contacts on Gmail.
Your friends and family are able to receive or request money right from the email itself—without having to install another payment app. They can even arrange for money they receive to go directly into their bank account. The best part about this, is that it’s completely free for both of you.
While there are various applications that do online transactions already (Venmo, CashApp), Google Wallet allows for no fees in transferring money. And best of all, the receiver doesn’t have to have Google Wallet. They can choose their redemption options through their email app.
