You can now send money through Gmail

  Gmail app sending moneyGmail app transferring money

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.

This feature is currently available in the U.S. only on Gmail on the web or Android, starting today. Maybe now your friends won’t have an excuse not to pay for last nights bar crawl.


Designer Tadashi Shoji Eau De Rose

“In the thirty plus years that I have been designing, I’ve learned that all women regardless of shape, size, and culture all want the same thing – to feel beautiful and confident in their own being,” said Shoji.
