Biggest E-wallets that make your transactions more convenient

Nowadays, E-wallet is familiar for many Android users. Not only does it provide a faster payment but it also keeps their financial information safe.

In our article, let’s go through some “giants” all over the world.


Among a wide range of E-wallets out there, PayPal might be the biggest name. The number of more than 150 millions of accounts is clear evidence for the outstanding achievements of this online payment service. Every transaction is safe, and all personal information of senders and recipients are protected. Once you use PayPal for payment, you will not have to enter your payment card number because you have already added it to your PayPal account. Also, with the chargeback function, customers can reclaim the money after sending money to another account. Further information is at Android app markets.


When it comes to e-commerce market, while in the US, users will think about eBay, in China - the most populous country in the world and the second largest economy in the world, Alibaba is the number one. Alipay - the e-wallet of Alibaba, which was launched in 2004, quickly dominated the e-payment market with more than 100 million users by the end of 2013.

As reported by iResearch, in 2013, the value of transactions through Alipay increased from 47.6 billion yuan to 905 billion yuan, 19 times higher than the previous year. The market share also increased from 31% to 74%.

Google Wallet

With Google Wallet, US users can purchase, send money or make purchases on Google Play. Also, customers can use Google Wallet to make purchases on Google Play via 125 countries.

Instead of using the card directly, customers will choose the type of payment card that is already integrated on the smartphone, and then scan it on Google's system at supermarkets or stores. Then, the bill will appear right on the smartphone screen. Customers just confirm to pay without waiting in line at the cashier.

In its first two years, Google Wallet attracted about 10 million downloads from Google Play. $500 million was traded in the US and approximately $12.8 billion worldwide in 2012. According to a Statista survey in June 2014, in the US, 40% of respondents said they knew Google Wallet. Want to know more? - Simply go to Android app files.


Launched in 2012 in the United States by MasterCard, the world's second-largest card issuer, PayPass e-wallet allows programmers to integrate the platform into devices, and account holders can pay by touching the phone. No need to insert your card into the machine as before.

Currently, MasterCard has released the PayPass support application for Android, allowing payment on the phone without logging card information, the company also signed a cooperation agreement with 30,000 registrars and many reputable banks. 5% of people surveyed in the US said PayPass is the most famous electronic wallet.

If you need to purchase internationally, directly download one of these apps on Google Store and make your deal smoother. And don't forget to download all at our store - App store apk download for android.

My first inclination when braking and judder is described is the ABS is activating. You say under heavy braking which is exactly where this would occur. What is the road surface bumpy, loose gravel while turning?

Sticking calipers could be the issue. Check the temperature of the wheels after a drive. If they are excessively hot you probably have sticking caliper pistons.

No, your experience is not common. The new brake pads and rotors should have solved the problem. But since it has returned, it is being caused by something other than the pads/rotors. I agree with Anker, the problem is most likely sticking calipers.

The flexible brake lines may be breaking down internally . When that happens it causes a restriction which will make the calipers hang up/fail to retract . That will kill rotors in a short time .
