Want GMail? Give us your CC details!

According to Twitter user @rmatei Google may have started testing out a new addition to the GMail signup process - asking for your credit card details!

The screenshot below is reportedly being seen by a few users signing up for new GMail accounts and is an optional signup to Google Wallet.

Other users are reporting that their signup path is unaffected and there was no attempt to cross-sell, so it's clear that this is some sort of trial on the part of the big G to determine whether adding the optional Wallet signup to the process succeeds in bringing in lots of new users...

What do you think?

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
