Google Checkout Going Down for Maintenance 4pm to 5pm Pacific, Get Your Paid App Purchases In


Just got an email from the folks at Google informing us that they’re taking Google Checkout down today for maintenance. Downtime will be between 4pm and 5pm pacific. If you happen to have a paid app you were planning on downloading within that hour, you’d better get a move on it. Full letter’s below, for your convenience.

We’re writing to inform you about a planned service outage impacting Android Market that requires your attention.

On Wednesday, June 15th, Google Checkout will be unavailable from approximately 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. PDT due to planned system maintenance. During this time, you will be unable to sign in to your Merchant accounts ( and transactions will not be processed. The Android Market Developer Console ( will still be available.

During the outage, users will still be able to view paid applications on Android Market; however, any attempts at purchases will fail. No new orders will be created. After the maintenance has been completed, all normal activity will resume. No action is required on your part.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
