How to decode JSON with type convert from string to float64

The answer is considerably less complicated. Just add tell the JSON interpeter it’s a string encoded float64 with ,string (note that I only changed the Price definition):

package main

import (

type Product struct {
    Name  string
    Price float64 `json:",string"`

func main() {
    s := `{"name":"Galaxy Nexus", "price":"3460.00"}`
    var pro Product
    err := json.Unmarshal([]byte(s), &pro)
    if err == nil {
        fmt.Printf("%+v\n", pro)
    } else {
        fmt.Printf("%+v\n", pro)
