    Google tacked another announcement onto a day full of them with an update to Google Wallet that lets you send money via Gmail.

    As the video above explains there will be a dollar-sign icon for Gmail attachments. Click it and you can transfer cash via Google Wallet. The recipient doesn't have to have a Gmail address and you can receive money as well. You can also pay using your credit and debit cards for a fee of 2.9% per transaction (minimum $0.30.)

    Isn't google wallet 100% credit card from the payer?
    Or does it have a "kitty" like paypal that I can put money in?

    Bad timing, since all I hear about Google at the moment is bad PR related to tax evasion...

    Users have expressed a desire to donate via wallet, but it seems that feature only exists for Non Profit Organizations?

    Does it support withdrawal to a bank account through Wire Transfer outside of US?

    Every company ever is going to get hammered for tax evasion.
