Digital banking and payment services company, Discover, is partnering with Google to allow cardholders to load their credit cards into the Google Wallet application (view press release). Discover cardholders will be able to tap and pay for purchase in-store in combination with the Google Wallet application on a compatible NFC smartphone and make purchases online.
Cardholders using Google Wallet to pay for items with their Discover card will be able to earn Cashback Bonus rewards. To use the service users must log into the Discover Account Centre, where a click-to-add-process allows cardmembers to add their Discover card and make it their primary credit card in the Google Wallet. The card will then sync to the Google Wallet application for those with a compatible NFC smartphone. Users also have the option of adding their credit card through the Google Wallet mobile app on their smartphone or by adding their card through their Google account online.
“Our cardholders regularly use their Discover card to make purchases and payments online, in-store and now more frequently through their mobile devices,” said Sanjay Gosalia, Director of Mobile at Discover. “By offering the ability to join Google Wallet through our Account Center, Discover is providing our cardmembers with even greater flexibility and convenience when it comes to paying for their purchases.”
