This would be an excellent tutorial to have.

This may be hard to implement unless there was a GoldCoin merchant services site that handled all the legwork (in a similar way as PayPal and Google Wallet).  In such a case a person could more easily add GoldCoin as a payment option without concerning himself with the GoldCoin Service running in the background all the time.

Something like BitPay does for bitcoins. I was able to deposit bitcoins at namecheap.com that way.
I filled out the amount at namecheap.com and then got redirected to BitPay, and it worked fine to deposit some money into my namecheap account.

Something like BitPay for Goldcoins would help Goldcoin

I could share my opencart script if people are interested. It is just a modified version of https://github.com/btcgear/OpenCart_Bitcoin.

Only downside is you have to update the value daily. I could however update it to pull from an api if there is a site that has a daily average for goldcoin.

Perhaps you could use the Cryptsy API? I think that's what the developers are using for the Android App.

I also do not understand what ipaint is asking.  ???

Using their public api's are you able to get a daily average? I haven't used their api and I am probably blind, could someone point me in the right direction?

The crypty public api is at:  http://pubapi.cryptsy.com/api.php?method=marketdata

This will retrieve the market data for all the coins traded at Cryptsy (against BTC or LTC).

Besides including the last trade price and the volume for the past 24 hours, it contains the last 50 to 200 trades for each coin.  From that information a weighted average can be calculated over a given period of time.  Currently I am working on a php version and a java version of this code, which I can make available within 3 days.

The attached Zip file has two files.

The first (cryptsy.php) is a file that displays all the coins traded on Cryptsy and their associated average trading prices (based on the last 100 trades).  The second file (cryptsy_api.php) is the file that gets the information from crypsty.com and calculates the average price.

Depending on the day, 100 shares may not be 24 hours in total.  There is a way to get more that 100 trades, but that would require the private API.

http://stousenet.com/goldcoin/cryptsy.php - This will show all the average prices.

Accepting Goldcoin At Webstore? Super easy. Sign up for CoinPayments.net

We are currently adding GLD as well as a few other coins, making a total of 21 coins. Come join the Beta. :)

What is your experience using their API? I have been playing with it a bit today and it is very slow. Even using a specific coin (ex. http://pubapi.cryptsy.com/api.php?method=singlemarketdata&marketid=30) takes 35+ seconds to pull the api and often times out.

Yes the public API is slow.  It wasn't 35 seconds for me, but currently I am 1,500 miles from their servers.  Until you pointed it out, I didn't even know Cryptsy had expanded their API, which is beneficial if only a few coins are needed.

Perhaps you could submit a support ticket to Cryptsy about resolving this issue.  Perhaps their api servers are overloaded with trading bot requests.

I just tried it and it only took 5 or so seconds. Maybe they were having server issues. I'll work it on a bit more tonight.


-Update
I have added cryptsy API to my checkout process with the help of Stouse49 so we should have more accurate GLD prices daily but it does slow the checkout process significantly. I am going to keep an eye on it for a few days and may change it back to manual mode if cryptsy's API is always this slow.
