Google payment system, Google Wallet, was recently updated by Google to add two new features. Check out these two new features:
Low balance alerts
Now Google Wallet users can be notified when your account reaches a specific dollar amount. This will prevent you from being embarrass when you reach checkout only to find out that your payment was declined because of insufficient money, you therefore can top-up your account when low.
Here’s how to set them up:
Step 1: Tap the left slide-out menu and pick Wallet Balance (or tap your balance amount if you’re on the main Wallet screen).
Step 2: Press Low Balance alert. Check the box next to Receive Low Balance alerts.
Step 3: Enter the amount that will trigger a low balance alert. Press the back arrow in the top left-hand corner to save.
The next feature added to Google Wallet is Automatic Transfer. This feature allows you to set up recurring bank transfers to your Google Wallet account. You can choose the amount, set a schedule (weekly, bi-weekly or monthly) and everything else will take care of itself. Best yet, there are no fees or minimum balance requirements.
Here’s how to set up automatic transfers:
Step 1: Tap the Add money button from the main screen and then press on “Set up a recurring transfer.”
Step 2: Enter the amount and then pick a frequency (weekly, once every two weeks or once a month) and the starting day of the week.
Step 3: Press the Review button in the top right-hand corner. The review screen will show you all of the details and you just need to tap Save to make initiate auto transfers.
The two new Google Wallet features added are a dream comes true for many Google Wallet users. These two new features are a part of the new version of Google Wallet in the Google Play Store and the App Store.
