    Accept Canadian Funds on Google Checkout

    Asked by Kurt on January 18, 2012 at 03:57 PM

    Any idea if and when you will update your GoogleCheckOut to accept Canadian Funds?  Currently it only accepts US or GBR.

    Great service otherwise. Thank you.

    Thank you for your kind words. Adding currency to a payment tool is probably one of the easiest tasks our developers can do. In the past, I've witnessed currency requests being implemented in a matter of hours.

    The unfortunate thing is that Google Checkout, the company itself, only accepts US and GBP payments as of the moment. Although the buyer's credit card company can automatically convert the charges to local currency (following current exchange rates), Google Checkout's API provides no facility to actively display prices (and charge, subsequently) in Canadian dollars.

    Below is an excerpt from Google Checkout's About page


    Google Checkout is available to U.S. and U.K. merchants. U.S. Google Checkout merchants must have a U.S. bank account and U.S. address, plus either of the following:

        A Social Security number (optional) and a valid credit card
        A Federal Tax ID/Employer Identification Number (EIN)

    Buyers from many other countries outside the United States and United Kingdom can also sign up for the service and make purchases through Google Wallet. While their purchases will always be processed in the currency matched to your address (U.S. dollars for U.S. merchants or Pounds Sterling for U.K. merchants), buyers' credit cards will usually provide seamless currency conversion.


    Hope this answer clears your issue.
