Google Checkout


Recommended Posts

Hello, does anyone know if there is a free php script or cart that works with TCH and Google Checkout. The problem I am having is that Google has a "checkout button" however if you wish to give a customer the option of addons you need a cart or somekind of script.. from what I can see.

 

Thanks for any support given.

The basic google button is, err.... very basic

 

if you want to have more options then you will need to look at (free) ecommerce options such as Zen cart or oscommerce. Otherwise you will just have to create lots of different google checkout options for each permutation, which might confuse customers.

 

The other gotcha is that if you want google to parse the info back to you once the customer has completed the order you will need an ssl. That is to say your stock levels will not be upgraded without ssl.

 

We use zen cart with both WorldPay and Goggle Checkout payment options.

 

The advantage of worldpay is that you do not need a ssl. You will however need to open a grown up merchant account via your business account. Set up costs can be free if you are a member of trade organisations such as the Federation of Small Businesses (uk).

 

If you do go for zencart then download the latest version rather than using the version in cpanel. A new up to date install on your site is easier than upgrading.

It is a bit of a learning curve but not too bad

 

Goodluck

I usually say 'proper merchant account', but I like 'grown up' better :)

 

 

Given that they can pull back funds from your account up to 6 months later perhaps "unfair/do as i say not as I do" grown up might be more acurate.

 

We have had experience of £1500 being pulled after 2 weeks because they thought it might be fraudulant, they then proceeded to charge us commission even though we had to get the customer to take a refund and then pay us by bacs because world pay and his spanish bank wouldn't talk to each other. To make things worse we decided to cover the money that he lost because of exchange rate movements. In all it probably cost us £100 because they are stoooopid!!!!
