Since Google is shutting down Google Checkout as of November 20, 2013 how can I start accepting Google Wallet payments using Magento 1.4.1.1 or will it still use the same API code?

I’m curious about this as well. Is there currently a way (with any version of Magento) to use Google Wallet?

Hi,

After MANY emails to Google, they have confirmed that Google Checkout is being retired. Google Wallet will ONLY work for digital goods, like apps. If you’re selling a physical product, you will have to remove Google Checkout and use PayPal, Amazon Payments or a payment gateway. Grr! :(

Google states 20th November 2013 that its long established Google Checkout will be made obsolete, and no other applications are going to replace it.

However, they also state that Google Wallet is still going to be of service for sites that provide Digital Downloads ONLY.

This, i’m sure, is great news for people with Digital Download Only sites, however some people have a mixture of Digital Downloads & Physical Products for sale, whilst others only have Physical Products Only.

We have repeatedly requested information from Google asking a clear question:
IS GOOGLE WALLET ADOPTING THE MERCHANT ID & MERCHANT KEY TO STILL ALLOW FUNCTIONALITY IN MAGENTO???

We have so far received absolutely - NOTHING.

So, if any of you know for sure that your Magento site is working perfectly with GOOGLE WALLET on Digital Downloads, please let us know.

Hi, i guess you’ve come across the same problem as everyone else. We’ve not yet come across anyone that is successfully using Google Wallet with Magento to complete a Digital Download.
So far it appears that Google Checkout Merchant Key & ID doesn’t transfer to Google Wallet.

So is it safe to remove - Lib_Google_Checkout from Magento Connect Manager?
