Google Wallet LogoGoogle today alerted developers that it will cease to offer the Google Wallet for Digital Goods API in March 2015. The API has for several years let online goods purveyors accept Google Wallet for payment.

Google originally provided the API to make it easier for people to buy and sell digital goods online. Google said the online payments landscape has changed enough since the API’s release that it no feels the need to offer it. Google is asking developers to strip their apps of Google Wallet and find alternate sources of payment processing.

Users of Google Wallet will be able to make payments via Wallet until March 2. Developers have until then to find other providers and cease calling on the API. The functionality of Google Wallet should not change for most people.
