Does this allow people who use Froogle/Google Base to pay for your products right there without going to your site?

Wendy, I think it does, but I think you might have to mark Google Checkout as a payment method on your items/feed.

OK, here is my ignorance showing through once again...if I switch to Google checkout, will I no longer offer the PayPal option? Or does ShoppePro offer the option to use either?

Does anyone know the answer to this?

Thank you!

You can still offer both. To pay by Paypal, they would just click "Go To Payments" or they would click Google Checkout to use Google Checkout. Like in this screen shot:

OK - I have another question regarding Google Checkout...on the Preferences page (under settings), it gives the option of:

1. Automatically authorizing buyer's credit card for full amount, or
2. Automatically authorizing buyer's credit card AND charge the credit card.

Do we leave it at #1 - wouldn't we want to charge it right then as well?

Also, I've looked all over but am not seeing a logo to place on our home page. Do you know where I find those?

Thanks so much!

I would pick #2 for sure.

Also, this is the post a few posts up from here about the logos:

FYI - Just thought I'd mention that it doesn't appear that orders placed through Google Checkout are going back to the store admin. (This affects inventory and order tracking). So it looks like for orders for which you receive payment through Google checkout, you will need to manually enter those orders into the store admin if you wish to track them. Also, it won't deplete inventory levels so you'll need to manually update those too for Google Checkout orders.

I have another Google question for you! Just received my first order which was paid through Google. However, Shoppepro is not showing it in my orders area, unlike orders paid through PayPal. Is there a delay, or will Shoppepro not show those orders? I realize I can manually add them, but was surpised it didn't show up automatically.

LOL, no worries. Not everyone reads every post in each topic. Just thought I'd point that out. :) ;)

Ok. So I am thinking that the "go to payments" option doesn't say paypal on it.
By removing that option do you that would slow down sales?

There is no option for sales tax for in-state sales. How would you do this?

Adry, no, it doesn't say Paypal. But upon inspecting your Mal's account in response to your ticket, you don't have Paypal enabled anyway.

There is a place for sales tax within your Google Checkout account somewhere.

I thought I set this up correctly but my site does not show up as accepting Google Checkout when I do a search. Is there a waiting period before it shows up? I signed up mid Feb.

Also, when I signed up for Checkout was I suppose to use the same password as the one for my regular google acct (the one I use for submitting sitemap for regular google search and datafeed for google base)?

If someone purchases an item, purchase page does show PayPal and Google Checkout now so I know I've done some of this the way I should have. Any help would be appreciated.

I have a question- because it's integrating with Mal's Cart, do I need to fill in the shipping/cancellation/return etc. policies in google? or will shoppers see the info I had set up in Mal's Cart? I also use Paypal/credit cards.

Do I have to fill in the google Return/Cancellation/Shipping policies or will it default to the policies I input in my Mal's Cart account?
