Google calls time on Wallet for digital goods

Game developers will no longer be able to accept payment through the Google Wallet platform.

Google has announced the "retirement" of its Wallet for digital goods platform, just three years after it was first launched.

The browser-based payment system allowed game developers to accept digital goods payments on their own desktop gaming websites. In a post to its help page, Google seemingly admits Wallet for digital goods didn't achieve the market penetration it had hoped for.

"The industry has matured a lot since [the product was launched], providing a number of alternative payment solutions  to choose from," the company said.It added that the decision had been taken as part of ongoing evaluation of its merchant tools, and how they are able to "meet new market challenges in the payments space".

The Google Wallet for digital goods API will be officially retired on 2 March, and Google is urging developers using the platform to switch to an alternative payment platform before that date.

"If you do not remove your integration before March 2, 2015, your buyers will get 404 errors upon checking out with Google Wallet for digital goods API. "To preserve your user experience, we highly recommend removing your integration and migrating to another payment processing solution  as soon as possible," Google said.

Developers using the platform will also be required to remove any references to Google Wallet from their site.

Although users will no longer be able to accept new payments through the platform after 2 March, they will be able to log into the Google Wallet Merchant Centre to deal with cancellations or refunds for existing orders, view their reporting and edit their account settings.
