"Finding and purchasing products is a big part of day-to-day life," Osama Bedier, vice president of Wallet and Payments at Google said in a blog post. "At Google, we?re working to create new ways to improve the commerce experience. We've worked closely with TxVia over the last year, and they're a forward-thinking team that will help us take the next steps in realizing the future of commerce. We welcome the TxVia team to Google," he added.
The Google Wallet mobile app is currently available for payment in-store on mobile phones running on Sprint's network. Other carriers like AT&T Mobile, T-Mobile USA, and Verizon Wireless are currently focused on building the Isis mobile platform through a joint venture.
