Google does not charge extra to the usual discount rate MasterCard is the burden of paying with a credit / debit cards, but expects to make some money out of it by linking mobile payments calls Google offers, coupons and loyalty programs. You may be at Macy's, for example, tap the phone in the Google brand offers and coupons from today or special offers, then use them in payment.

Regarding security concerns, Google explained that Google acts as a portfolio of virtual credit card, you can call on or off, if your phone is lost or stolen. Still, you have to enter a password PIN for payment to take place, as if you are paying with a debit card to enter your PIN code, plus if your phone is lost there is nothing to call MasterCard anyway.
