Google has rolled out its in-app payment service for any Web developer.
The service was first announced in May at Google's I/O Conference. The feature allows developers to offer single-click payments from their applications. At launch, Google touted the platform's simple integration into a respective Web app, saying that it only required the addition of a single line of code.
When Google first announced in-app payments, the company said it would be made available only to Chrome Web Store developers. However, Google said yesterday that its in-app payment system is now "available for all Web application developers to integrate with their Web apps wherever they're hosted."
The biggest draw of Google's in-app payment service is its pricing. Rather than taking a 30 percent share of revenue as Apple does, Google is charging a 5 percent fee.
To sign up for Google's in-app payments, developers must be Google Checkout members. Consumers buying the goods in-app can also pay for goods through their Google accounts.
