What is "Google Pay", how does it work and how to use it?

Currently, more than half of trade transactions in developed countries are carried out electronically. The expansion of information technology and e-commerce operations is making cash payments increasingly obsolete. Recently, the wide spread of electronic commerce in our country has made it possible for electronic payments to gradually take more place in our lives. One of these technologies is electronic wallet (EW). An electronic wallet is an electronic form of physical cash available on smartphones, tablets and NFC-enabled devices. With EW, you can make all your payments with just one touch.
Currently, there are 3 electronic wallet services that are most used in European countries: Google Pay, Apple Pay and Paypal. In particular, it should be noted that the electronic wallet market in European countries is on the rise and is predicted to reach $708 billion in 2025.
