I discovered a new Gmail feature: there is a new Google Wallet icon when tou compose an e-mail through Gmail, allowing to send a payment or receive a payment very easily.

Apparently Google Wallet doesn't collect fees when sending or receiving payments, which is interesting since Paypal (and Skrill) do upon reception or when transfering the online fund to the bank.

What do you think?Do you know any translation agency that accepts sending payments to freelance translators through Google Wallet? Is it really secured ?

Seems a good idea but.. Jan 22

From their FAQ -

Do Google Wallet works internationally?
UK users can send or request money on and through Gmail. You can't transfer money between the US and UK at this time.

I tried to sign in and got this message:

"Wallet can't be used

This could be because Google Wallet isn't supported in your country or because you're using a business account. To see your purchases from Google Play and other products, go to the payments center."

But I do think people living in the UK should give it a try.
