Google Wallet Update Brings “Orders,” an Easy Way to Track Your Online Purchases

An update for Google Wallet was announced by Google today, which brings a new feature called Orders. With Orders, users of Google Wallet who make online purchases will have an easier time tracking their purchases. Not only the purchasing aspect, but the actual shipping and delivering of your purchase as well. 

The “how it works” is very straightforward, and the service basically works with almost any receipt that is sent to your Gmail account. Orders placed from many online retailers, as well as Google Play, can be tracked through most of the major US package carriers (FedEx, UPS).

Once you activate Orders in Google Wallet, you’ll be able to see any receipts sent to your Gmail right in the Google Wallet app. We’ve also worked with primary package carriers in the US so that when your order status is updated, you’ll get notified of the update through Wallet. So whether your order is shipped, out for delivery, or delayed, you’ll never wonder about the status of your order.

Even if you have not been managing your online shopping shipments via Google Now, Google Wallet is now another line of offense for you to do so.

Go grab the update.

    Does this mean also mean you can enter any tracking number into the Wallet app somewhere and it can track those? That would be nice, but I doubt you can do it.

      • Tony Pettinato

        Your reply doesn’t make any sense. Please elaborate.

          Hopefully Xbox live doesn’t go down again. Kinda hard to play a multiplayer only game with no live!

      A few weeks ago, Google now was showing me the shipping on apps I bought in the play store

    I’ve been using this app to track my packages. Works really well and Dev is really helpful. Has a nice Holo UI. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.orrs.deliveries

      Just installed this, look great. Thanks for the suggestion

    • Pedro

      Nice find. Auto links to Amazon shipments. Only a buck thirty-five to get the Pro version. Easy decision.

    With Google now doing it, whats the need for wallet to

    • 213ninja

      google now doesn’t pick up all of my stuff, hopefully wallet will do a better job…or maybe it’s more configurable. i also don’t see google now auto-fetching the status from UPS/FedEx, etc.

    • Chris

      makes more sense in wallet then a silly google now card given wallet is just that a wallet.

    How about LG G2 support!

    • JRomeo

      just install the app from the play store.

      • OreoMan

        It doesn’t support the G2 right now. I can get the app, it just won’t allow the tap to pay….which I assume is because of the whole Isis/TMo deal.

        • It’s the whole 4.4 KitKat deal. Tap and Pay only works with select phones with the secure element. The new Host Card Emulation works on any phone, provided it is 4.4+.

          • crazed_z06

            Is this true? I heard it doesnt work on new Samsungs with 4.4.

        • Taylor Abrahamson

          as soon as you get your 4.4 KitKat update it will be available for you to download.

      Root, ROM, and repeat till you find the one you love…
