    I think Google Wallet has a lot of great features like loyalty cards, offers and it works on a variety of phones but... Google doesn't understand retail or social. In the same way they tried in social by dumping features into Google+ they are doing the same thing with Wallet. Google+ didn't lose because of features, they lost because no one understands what it is. Google Wallet also seems to be a solution looking for a problem. It takes too many steps to pay and half the people who have it don't even know about it.

    They need to take a picture out of Uber's, Square's, and Snapchat's playbook. Create a culture and get influencers to adopt it. Google Wallet has no media mindshare and no one ever talks about it positively. They could change that if they actively invested resources into it.

    I added money to my Google wallet, just 150, last week. The money was taken out of my account last Tuesday but is still pending today.

    Don't worry. Apple will get this mobile pay market in high gear. Android has bragged forever about having NFC but it never really took off. Now Apple has it and it's all over the news.
