Google Finance, the finance app for your mobile phone, is about to get a major upgrade.
Starting April 1, Google Finance will offer a new “advanced payment mode” that allows users to make more aggressive payments than ever before, even if the transactions are under $10.
The feature is currently only available to those in the US, but Google says it plans to add support for the rest of the world in the coming weeks.
To make a bigger purchase, you’ll have to use a “small-dollar” payment option, which means you can’t make a larger purchase and still get a lower balance, unless you also make the purchase with your regular monthly fee.
“Small-dollar payments are the best way to make small payments without a major transaction,” Google said in a blog post announcing the change.
“For example, you could make $30 and make $100 on a car payment.
Then you make a $30 check on the car and make a check out to your friend.”
With this new advanced payment mode, users will be able to make payments of anywhere between $10 and $100 a month, with no limit.

In addition, Google says the advanced payment feature will also help users make more frequent payments.
“You can make a payment every day, or every week, or even every month,” Google Finance wrote.
“We’ve made it easier for you to make a quick payment to yourself or your friends, or a large payment to someone close to you.
When you make that payment, it gets added to your account automatically.”
For users that have already signed up for Google Finance on their phone, the new advanced payments feature will be available through Google’s mobile app, as well as through the web.
“Google has been working with our partners to create a faster, simpler, more secure and more affordable way to access your financial information,” Google finance vice president of product marketing and development Brian Kibler said in the blog post.
“The advanced payment system, combined with a few of the new features that Google Finance brings to Google Finance that you’re already familiar with, will make it easier than ever to pay with Google Finance.
We’re excited to see what your favorite brands will be using in the future.”
The new advanced options are not available for all users.
“When you sign up for the app, you can make multiple small-dollar or large-dollar transactions, so you can still get the full benefit of the advanced payments option,” Google explained.
“But the payment method is limited to a maximum of $10 per month, and we don’t allow you to pay more than $50 or $100 in a single transaction.
This is so we can provide the best customer experience, but we also want you to know that the advanced option is only available for US users.”
As with the standard Google Finance payment options, users can also use the new “off-budget” payment options.
If you want to make some quick cash, you’re able to use off-budget payments to make one or more small- or large-$100 transactions.
The payment options will be limited to $1,000 or $10,000.
“This is just one way that Google will help you make better, smarter and more frequent payment choices,” Kibraman said.
“In addition to the new payment options in Google Finance for people that already use Google Finance or that have a mobile device, we’re also rolling out a number of new payment methods for Google users to try.”
Google said that Google finance is available to people who already have Google Wallet, Google Pay, or Google Docs.
It’s also available to US users who have used Google Wallet or Google Pay.
