Most traffic to online stores now comes from tablets and smartphones. The issue is that many of these buyers don’t end up checking out from their mobile device. This can lead to unrestricted shopping carts and less orders. That is the reason, we have been working closely with Google to build and assimilate Google Wallet with responsive shopify themes.
At present, we are eager to announce that qualified Shopify vendors based in the United States can start accepting payments from customers using Google Wallet.
Google Wallet, a US-only payment method, helps online buys securely store their debit and credit cards with Google, facilitating buyers to rapidly checkout from all online stores that display the "Buy with Google" button. Rather than, typing in their billing, shipping address and credit card details, on a tiny virtual keyboard, they can tap the “Buy with Google” button and speedily checkout using their Google credentials.
“Typing shipping and billing information on mobile devices can be a difficult experience, which is one of the main reasons why mobile shoppers abandon their shopping carts. We're working with Shopify, the leading commerce platform, to integrate Google Wallet and make checkout on mobile devices as easy as two clicks.”
— Hana Chang, Head of Commerce Platforms, Google
