That is not what they said. They said hosting is not a digital good. Of course you will always get the same answer when asking the same question (at least one would hope). Why not follow up with a question like "well, how do I use wallet to sell physical goods?"
Google Wallet for digital goods is formerly known as In-App payments. Web hosts don't use In-App payments as far as I know. No one is claiming you can sell web hosting inside of Angry Birds
They have two APIs: one called Google Wallet for Instant Buy
(previously known as Google Wallet for Online Commerce) and one called Google Wallet for digital goods
(notice that "digital" and "goods" is not capitalized).
Google Wallet for Instant Buy is "A cloud-based method of accessing and storing payment information, Google Wallet Instant Buy lets buyers purchase physical goods and services
on mobile websites and desktop web apps. Buyers can easily access their payment information and make a transaction in a single click or tap. "
Bottom line to date: A host can still use Wallet, as I have already proven time and time again by: (1) Signing up as a Web Host (2) Listing other hosts that use Wallet and (3) providing attachments supporting (1).
Everything on their website, including legal documents support my conclusions. Any web host innocently getting to their site can sign up for Wallet merchant account.
