Cool! Are there no extra charges associated with Google Pay or Apple Pay?

I think not - but you still have to pay the actual payment processor. The easiest ones to use are Stripe and Braintree, and they aren't cheap (around 2.9% + 30¢ or so), which might put charities off using them.

That said, it may be worth the expense if it means people donate who would otherwise get lost at the 'checkout' process.
