Making payments with Google Wallet on the Nexus 7...

Recommended Posts

Dumb question alert:-

How do I get Google Wallet onto the Nexus 7?

If you are in US, just get it in Play store.

IF you are in anywhere else, Flash Paul's custom rom.

Paul has included a patched Google Wallet app with the rom.

Any funny looks when you tried to pay?

If I am getting a free Big Mac meal out of it they can throw all the funny looks they want lol.

Thanks a lot, Paul. That was the problem in my Nexus 7 (Wallet app frozen). :)

Funny thing is, even though it says "unsupported device", I was able to set up a card and get the free US$10 on it using the included / standard Google Wallet app. Apparently, this is due to my GNX7 device being rooted.

What are the differences between the standard and MoDaCo wallet versions ?

I'm pretty sure you don't need inet access to make it. The data communication for validation / confirmation of your payment is up to the retailer's NFC terminal. ;)

since I do not have any united states credit card I take it there is no way of getting additional funds onto the google wallet once the initial 10 dollars has been used up? Can you use it online too?

My version removes device and root checks, as well as operator checks on phones that prevents you using it.

Correct. I've paid in store with the tablet without a data connection. :)

Offline only, US card needed to load it up.
