New Shopping Cart Integration: Google Checkout

Google Checkout now joins PayPal and Shopify as one of our shopping cart integrations.

Why Google Checkout? Well, it’s GOOGLE! We’d be crazy not to pair up with this Internet juggernaut.

But besides that, they offer a fast, convenient checkout process for your customers. And their payment guarantee protects 98% of Checkout orders on average – which means if an order is guaranteed, you get paid even if it results in a chargeback.

How it Works

You can use Google checkout for online transactions on your website, and your customers don’t need a Google Checkout account to purchase. Once they make a purchase, they’re added to your AWeber list.

  • 1) You get your Merchant ID and Merchant Key from your Google account. This information can be found under the Integrations section in the Settings tab.
  • 2) You enter the ID and Key in the Google Checkout section of My Apps in your AWeber account. Copy the URL that appears.
  • 3) Enter the URL into the Integrations section in Google. Make sure under the “Callback Contents” section the first option “Notification Serial Number” is checked. Save the page.
  • 4) Select which list you would like to send subscribers to back in My Apps. Note that in order to use the option “I want to add people to different lists based on the product they buy,” you’ll need to have transactions with those products for them to appear. You can purchase from yourself to get them to appear here.

But What About Google Wallet?

As you may have heard, Google Checkout will eventually merge with Google Wallet. It will still offer the shopping cart service, which is what this integration works with, and will continue to function the same under the new name.
