Google May Be Prepping Physical Google Wallet Card

physical-Google-Wallet-card-rfid-blogIt is said that Google may be planning to launch plastic wallet cards that would work in conjunction with Google Wallet.

The physical Google Wallet card will work just like a regular credit card and can charge whichever default card you currently selected on the Wallet app.

It will work anywhere major credit cards are accepted, and can be used in those scenarios where tap-and-pay is not a supported or preferred method of payment. With a Google Wallet card and a phone, user can leave all his/her credit cards at home.

Acquiring the card is simple — you can order the card straight through the Google Wallet app and have it delivered directly to your house.

In addition, additional features are coming to Wallet app as well: the ability to deposit and withdraw money to and from a “Wallet Balance”, and person-to-person money transfers.

Google could publish a version of the Wallet app without NFC permissions that just allows you to switch between your cards, which could be installed on any phone (even iOS or Windows Phone, theoretically), and you just use the Wallet card for payments. Google really does seem to have thrown a wrench in the works of the likes of ISIS and other competing systems.
