You can use Google pay to make a purchase across millions of places, be it online, stores and much more. Once you have entered your debit/credit card details and linked to your account, you no need to enter the payment information again while checking out. Further, if you are using chrome, then Google pay automatically fills in all details like shipping address, billing and payment info, this reduces the hassle to fill out forms. Google pay has been thought of as an alternative to Apple pay, which has been available since 2016.
