Google today announced that it has integrated Google Wallet with Gmail, allowing Wallet users to securely email money directly to anyone else who has an email address. Money can be sent for free from checking accounts, and for low fees from credit or debit cards. The feature is slowly being made available to all Gmail users over the age of 18. Though the feature is primarily aimed at desktop users, money can be emailed from the smartphone and tablet mobile browser version of Google Wallet.

My bank also just started offering this feature. I want to sign up but I am concerned about how the whole thing works using emails. o.o. I guess I dont fully grasp the security of how it works.
Gmail is probably the most secure, plus it has 2 step verification so unauthorized access is prevented. I have mine to send a text message for verification during the 2 step process.
Sounds great! Does it work anywhere in the world? I'd love to ditch Moneygram to send back to my wife's family.
