WP e-Commerce
[resolved] Google Wallet Gateway (7 posts)

    I recently got the paypal gateway working but I also wanted to use google wallet. The settings want a merchant ID and a merchant key, but when I sign up for google wallet it provides me with a Seller Identifier and Seller secret. I tried using these values for merchant ID and key but it did not work. I can't seem to find where to get a merchant ID and key for my google wallet account. Am I missing something here?

    Thanks

    Hey there,
    Google Checkout is no longer available. It has been retired by google completly. They only have Google Wallet for in app purchases.

    You can read their official announcement here:

    I see. I got confused because the title in the wp e-commerce gateway store settings says Google Wallet, but it is actually Google Checkout.

    Is there an estimate of when WP e-Commerce will support Google Wallet?

    As you said, Google shut down Google Checkout months ago and gave over a year of warning, but WP e-Commerce still doesn't support Google Wallet. The Google button they (try to) display is a broken image and the link is broken as well.

    Google wallet is just for digital goods. I think they focus it more for Apps developers to allow in app purcahses:

    Merchants selling digital goods may transition to Google Wallet for digital goods
    Merchants selling physical goods will need to switch to third-party alternatives (see below)

    Google recommended switching to braintree for which GetShopped sells a gateway.

    Thank you for your reply. Yes, I'm trying to sell digital goods, so Google Wallet would work well for me. I was hoping that WP e-Commerce would support it so that I don't have to switch plugins.

    Does your reply mean WP e-Commerce will never support Google Wallet?

    I cant say for sure but i dont believe so. Google Wallet is now from what i understand more focused on Apps purchases (mobile, tablet, etc)
