Many consumers these days are using smartphones as digital wallets at credit card terminals all over the United States. One of the firms leading the charge is Google, which has been signing deals with major credit card companies to promote its mobile payment system.

In a recent a statement, the search engine giant said that it had come to an agreement with Discover Card to provide a new Save to Wallet API for the Google Wallet program. The system will leverage a cloud-based app and will no longer require people type in an account number once they’ve signed up for the program.

“We’re enthusiastic about the progress we’re making with Google Wallet,” a Google spokeswoman said in an emailed statement. “We continue to work hard to build our partner ecosystem to make it possible for everyone to pay with Google Wallet, in-store or online.”

Some of the most well-known restaurant franchises are also hoping to take advantage of the merchant services-related system. Earlier this month T.G.I. Friday’s introduced a new mobile app for consumers to use for payment.
