Good news guys!! Google has just introduced the ability to send and receive funds through Gmail. Just like you would attach files and pictures, you simply attach the amount you want to send and Voila!! Deal is done.
In truth, this feature has been around for a while now. Google officially rolled it out earlier this year, but the doubting Thomas in me refused to accept it. Until I tried to compose an email today and the feature greeted me with a big smile.
Before you start using this, you’ll need to add a valid Master Card to your Google Wallet account. Once setup, you can then send and receive cash. To send simply select Compose in your email, then go to the dollar sign and attach. As a first timer you’ll be required to set up your Google Wallet.
To receive money, Open the message with attached money and click on Claim Money. You’ll be required to verify your identity, you go back and click Claim Money. Receiving money is free and can be done on both desktop and mobiles.
