Google Checkout is being retired:
I’m not sure if Google Wallet for digital goods might be an option going forward.May 22, 2013 at 12:01 am #55759
Google has been retiring a few of their services this year. Google wallet looks good for now but now sure if that will be retired soon too.August 21, 2013 at 2:36 pm #55760
This is the only thread I found regarding the Google Checkout retirement on November 20th, so I’d like to chime in.
Google tells me that as a seller of digital goods I will automatically transition to Google Wallet and I will not be impacted.
Are you going to update the Payment Gateway Bundle Add-on, or how is the change to Google Wallet going to happen?August 22, 2013 at 12:38 am #55761
Hi, we plan to release a free addon for Google Wallet before November.August 24, 2013 at 6:12 am #55762morleyMember
That sounds great. With Google’s new pricing model and proactive approach to getting reviews for the merchant, this should be a strong addition. From their website:
Attractive pricing: the most favorable of 5% or 1.9% + 30c (USD) per transaction is automatically applied.October 21, 2013 at 5:49 pm #55763
Any news about this Google Wallet add-on that you were planning to releasing before November? How exactly would that replace the add-on that I’m using now?October 21, 2013 at 11:50 pm #55764
Hi, we are currently working on Google Wallet for digital goods as an alternative to Google Checkout. However, due to some limitations in the Google Wallet API we will only be able to provide the functionality for one-item checkout (Similar to a Buy Now type button). Here is the full checkout process for Google Wallet for digital goods:
1) A user clicks the one-item checkout button on your site.
2) The user lands on a page where they will enter their billing information.
3) Once they submit the form they will be able pay on the Google Wallet payment form (if the user is not logged in Google Wallet will prompt them to login to their Google account).
4. The user returns back to the merchant site.October 22, 2013 at 1:18 am #55765
Do you think that you’d be able to build soon an add-on for multiple-item check out? If not, do you know of another solution to make it work?
In my store there is no such thing as a one-item purchase; people always purchase a lot more items within the same transaction.
What will happen with the WP Payment Gateway Bundle plugin that I’m using now on my site? Will it stop working?
Sorry to bother you, but about 15% of my clients are using exclusively Google Checkout.October 22, 2013 at 10:29 pm #55766
We would love to do that too but Google Wallet for digital goods seem to only allow you to do one item checkout at a time. It doesn’t have any option to submit multiple item data at the same time like standard Google Checkout gateway did.October 22, 2013 at 11:20 pm #55767
Wait, maybe I’m reading this all wrong.
Let’s say someone orders 100 units of the same kind of item, let’s say item A. Would that work?
What you are saying is that Google Wallet is not working to check out 12 units of item A AND 14 units of item B AND 8 units of item C?October 23, 2013 at 1:46 am #55768
Yeah you can buy as many units/quantity of a particular item in one go. Google wallet just doesn’t let you checkout item A and B and C at the same time.October 23, 2013 at 2:39 am #55769
Ahh, in that case that’d work for me.
Looking forward to testing the new add on then.
Thank you.November 26, 2013 at 4:46 pm #55770
I received the Google Wallet For Digital Goods Payment Gateway addon per email a while back, and I installed it as per these instructions: http://www.tipsandtricks-hq.com/ecommerce/wp-estore-addon-google-wallet-for-digital-goods-payment-gateway-2579
Not sure why it is not working, but this is the page I put the button on in case you’d like to take a look: [http://101content.com/seo-articles-keywords-lsi-embedded-2/]
It looks very basic, and it is sending buyers to PayPal instead of Google Wallet.
I had the WP Payment Gateway Bundle disabled in advance of installing the Google Wallet For Digital Goods Payment Gateway, since it seems they were conflicting somehow.November 26, 2013 at 11:11 pm #55771
@inplainview, The button code looks fine. So I’m not sure why it’s redirecting to the manual gateway. Can you please install a fresh copy of WP eStore plugin?
