As the video below explains, the recipient doesn’t have to have a Gmail address and you can receive money as well. Users who link their bank accounts to Google Wallet receive transactions for free. Those using debit or credit cards pay a 2.9% transaction fee (minimum $0.30), and transactions are limited to $10,000.

According to Google, the transactions are encrypted and stored on secure servers. Transactions are also monitored to preempt fraudulent activity. Google Wallet Purchase Protection also covers 100% of “eligible unauthorized transactions.”
