This year has been a busy one for Google Pay, as it tries to gain prominence in a crowded market with competitors like Apple Pay, Samsung Pay and even Walmart Pay.

In September, the service announced that it was working on using QR codes to allow customers to send payments. This would allow people to send money to each other by scanning their phone screens.

Also in September, Australia’s ANZ bank added Google Pay for its personal Visa credit and debit card users. The system lets customers make online or in-store payments, all using the mobile app.

In July, the service launched a new user design. The biggest change was that Android Pay became Google Pay, but the company also introduced a simpler interface. Users were able to see a list of recent spending, with the ability to add and remove payments, manage subscriptions, update billing addresses and make other changes.



The How We Shop Report, a PYMNTS collaboration with PayPal, aims to understand how consumers of all ages and incomes are shifting to shopping and paying online in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our research builds on a series of studies conducted since March, surveying more than 16,000 consumers on how their shopping habits and payments preferences are changing as the crisis continues. This report focuses on our latest survey of 2,163 respondents and examines how their increased appetite for online commerce and digital touchless methods, such as QR codes, contactless cards and digital wallets, is poised to shape the post-pandemic economy.
