Currently Declined

The new google wallet for us will be automatically affective on Nov. 20, 2013. The API is totally different then the check out so this will need to be worked on.

Google Wallet only allows offering for digital goods. They currently classify Web Hosting as a physical good, thus using Google Wallet for the sale of Web Hosting would be against their terms of service.

For this reason, we have not began working on Google Wallet.

Here's my two cents. Not everyone uses WHMCS for web hosting, I certainly don't. I use it for In-App purchases of digital goods. WHMCS does the processing and a custom module applies the tokens to the user's account. Also, please realize that it's also not WHMCS role to worry about it's client's EULA with Google. A better forum response would be "Anyone here is welcome to write the integration and submit it to WHMCS"


Im sorry, but can someone post the link from Google that believes that web hosting is a physical good?

I found this list:


And there is nothing at all mentioned about web hosting. In fact, you can use the service to sell software licenses (legal ones), so I don't see why web hosting is any different.

Web hosting or domain names do not require any shipping, they are in the cloud, they are mostly virtual, mostly digital.

Could the declinee please explain this?


I've seen the same thing reported on the CE forum to say Google Wallet is not for Physical Goods or Services , but when you look at Google Wallets business site, there's a screenshot of some guy selling car washes through Google Wallet, and someone selling shoes!:



@WHMCS_Chris - You are forgetting people use WHMCS for much more than just web hosting. I guess we will write one ourselves. Stay tuned.
