Google

As promised, Google is streamlining online purchases made through Android devices by rolling out Pay with Google. The feature lets you use any of the credit or debit cards you've previously logged on the web titan's products (like Chrome, Android Pay, YouTube, or Google Play) to checkout in just a few clicks -- verifying your purchase with a security code or your Android device. That way, you don't have to type in your lengthy card info on a website or app payment form. Instead, Google just sends the merchant your payment details and shipping address from your account.

Pay with Google is currently available at 15 places in total (shown above), with more on the horizon -- including Airbnb, and a number of additional food delivery services. Google first announced the feature, which taps into its Google Pay API, at its I/O event in May. To lure more merchants, it's foregoing a transaction fee on purchases.
