Android Pay and Google Wallet have now merged into a single payment brand under Google Pay.

In the coming weeks, Google says Google Pay will be found online, in stores and across other Google products.

It’s already available on Airbnb, Dice, HungryHouse, Instacart, Fandango and other apps and websites.

In Canada, Android Pay has collaborated with Moneris, Bambora, Chase, Cybersource, First Data, Global Payments, Paysafe, WorldPay and Stripe.

Google is also working with several U.S. retailers on promotional items, such as $5 off a Fandango ticket or $10 off an Instacart order to motivate people to sign up.
