Google Checkout Shopping Cart Plugin


Easily add Google Checkout shopping cart buttons to any post. Google Checkout provides a shopping cart tool that allows webmasters to use a javascript shopping cart. Drop a tag into any post and this plugin will place the “add to cart” button and the price into the post.

[gtitle=49.99; gprice=49.99;]

The buy now button is not currently supported.

Can I use a buy it now button?

Currently this plugin does not support “buy it now” buttons

Can I add options to my products?

Currently this plugin does not provide that functionality. However, I do have plans to add the ability for multiple options and prices.

I see the button, but nothing happens when I click “add to cart”

Make sure that the code specified in installation steps 4-7 in in place on your site.

Can I see this plugin in action?

Here you go: Linksys Print Server WPSM54G Product Page

What if I get an error or the price or button does not show up?

Make sure that you put a semi-colon after each value: [gtitle=my title; gprice=49.99;]

Be sure not to use ‘$’ for price

The price is a number, eventually I will strip out non-numbers, but that did not make it into this release.
