Google today announced that it’s bringing the Google Wallet “Instant Buy” checkout feature it first launched on Android to iOS developers. The API allows developers to integrate a fast checkout experience using Google Wallet and with today’s announcement will now work across the web, iOS and Android.
Merchants and developers selling physical goods and services can use Instant Buy to take advantage of the following:
