Send cash via Gmail – Google Wallet attachment
You will soon be spottiung a new dollar sign button ($) in the Gmail compose window. This will allow you to easily send money as a gift or payment.
On the back end it’s the same as the money exchange system offered within Google Wallet, which means that there’s a 2.9% fee per transaction (minimum $0.30).
You can use either a credit or debit card to send money – is this going to be challenging the ever-present PayPal?
Google says the feature will be making its way into Gmail for users over 18 years old over the next few months – it could be handy.
