Google Move Signals End of Visa Checkout, Secure Remote Commerce Nears

August 15, 2019

Visa Checkout, the online payment system, is shutting down completely in 2020.  And 9to5 Google reports Google Pay digital wallet has already ceased integrating Visa Checkout into wallet services.

The move comes after major credit card companies, including Mastercard, Visa, American Express and Discover, announced earlier this year that they will be joining together to launch their own checkout payment system.

The system, based on EMV Secure Remote Commerce (SRC), will begin rolling out later this year. EMV SRC is a set of specifications developed by EMVCo that enable merchants to offer one-button checkout for most major credit and debit cards.

In the meantime, Visa credit and debit cards will be supported by Google Pay, but users won't be able to connect Google Pay and Checkout anymore.
