Appmonger & Google Wallet – An Update

Google’s hitherto slow migration of Google Checkout users to Google Wallet appears to have accelerated massively this weekend – at least judging by the number of e-mails we’ve received about Appmonger no longer working. The problems that these users are seeing are the same as those that others have been experiencing since the transition began in April. At that time we took the decision to suspend sales of Appmonger until it was possible to make a version that would work with Wallet.

The good news is that Rectangular Software’s own merchant account has now been migrated, which means we finally have access to Google Wallet for testing. Hopefully we’ll be able to release an Appmonger update this week that works with Wallet.

In the meantime, if you were using Appmonger with a Google Checkout merchant ID and key, you can continue to do so as the Google Checkout API is still functioning (and presumably will until Checkout is shutdown in November). You will though need to have already made note of your ID and key because you can no longer access the Google Checkout website to retrieve them.

UPDATE (8th July 2013): Version 2.4 with Google Wallet support is now available from Google Play.

    Hi Dan,

    Looking forward to the update. Let myself and Paul know if you want any beta testers. (We were moved across over the weekend too)

    @Steven: It should be ready soon. The good news is that I have a version that successfully authenticates with Google Wallet and downloads the data. The bad news is that this data is not quite the same as that from Google Checkout so I need to make changes to the rest of the app so that it still works. Hopefully I’ll be able to get that finished today, or maybe tomorrow.
