The new Google feature allows a user to buy a subscription using their Google account on participating new sites. The user would then choose the publisher on offer to buy, click subscribe and then you are done.
The user will then automatically be signed in to the site and from there, they can pay securely and privately with any credit card that has been used on Google before.
