Retiring Google Checkout
Google reports that On November 20th, 2013, it will shut down Google Checkout. If you’re a Checkout user, read this support article for details about how to remove it from your website, etc. Shipwire will be keeping track of changes here.
You could be affected in one of the following ways:
- Merchants selling digital goods may transition to Google Wallet for digital goods
- Merchants selling through Google-hosted marketplaces (e.g. Google Play) will be unaffected
- Merchants selling physical goods will need to switch to third-party alternatives (see below)
Shipwire customers currently using Google Checkout as a shopping cart should begin researching an alternative. To help the transition, here’s a list of carts that are already integrated with our platform; Paypal IPN is likely a strong option.
