Google is retiring Google Checkout in the coming months, as the company transitions to Google Wallet. Merchants can continue to accept payments using Google Checkout until November 20, 2013.

If you don’t have your own payment processing, you will need to transition to a different solution within six months. Google has partnered with Braintree, Shopify and Freshbooks to offer users discounted migration options. If you are a U.S. merchant that does have payment processing, you can also apply for Google Wallet Instant Buy.

Developers selling through other Google properties (such as Google Play, Chrome Web Store and Offers Marketplace) will continue to be supported and will automatically transition to the Google Wallet Merchant Center in the next few weeks, says Google. 

Shoppers can continue to use Google Wallet to make purchases on merchant apps and sites.
