Google Checkout Closing Down - Alternative Payment Gateways to Use With Your Wufoo Form

By Andrew Gosnell · November 15th, 2013

This is a warning to anyone who is still using Google Checkout as the payment gateway for your Wufoo form! As they previously announced, Google will be closing down the Google Checkout payment gateway.

After Wednesday, November 20th, you’ll no longer be able to accept payments through your Wufoo form into your Google Checkout account.

Before that happens, you’ll want to switch over any of your forms that are currently using Google Checkout, and connect them to one of our other great payment gateway options. Here are a few of our suggestions:


If you’re in the United States, we recommend Stripe. They have a super-easy signup process that will get you up and running in minutes.

Another benefit for using Stripe over Google Checkout is that your form will use the integrated Wufoo payment page. So if you have your Wufoo form embedded in your own page, your customers will stay right on your website when paying, rather than getting redirected to a third-party site.

Check out our blog post about Stripe for more information about how to connect your Wufoo form to Stripe.


If you’re in Australia, Canada, Europe, or the United States, then Braintree might be a good option for you. Check out our blog post about Braintree to learn more about your options with them.

As with Stripe, when you use Braintree with your Wufoo form, your customers will pay on an additional payment page of your Wufoo form, rather than being redirected to a third-party site.

Find out more about Braintree or sign up at the Braintree website.

Other Options

We have several other payment gateway options including PayPal and Chargify, listed in our Payment Settings help article.

And of course if you have any questions about your Wufoo payment settings or how to switch your form over to a new payment gateway, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
