I recently got an email from google saying I cant sell items on my site (why i do not know! ) they ask me to put some code into my page to show a “not available with google checkout image” but I have no idea how or where to put it or if it is even possible. If I dont do it they will ban me from google checkout!
All for selling some herbs that are all legal and available in any health store.
Any help would be much appreaciated ! My template has google checkout built into it. Below is the email.
