Support » Plugin: Business Directory Plugin » [Plugin: Business Directory Plugin] Problems with Google Checkout

  • Resolved Carol786



    I have business directory plugin installed and everything is working fine except for the google checkout. I enabled it and entered my Merchant ID. It also asks for the sellers ID, but when you register for google checkout you only get a merchant ID so I am not sure what the other field is asking for. Anyways, filling in the merchant ID and leaving the sellers ID empty still does not make it work. I appreciate any help.

    Hi Carol,

    Sounds like Google Checkout may have changed things on me. Seller ID is a required field, so put something in there–“SellerID” may be enough. Report back if Google is throwing new errors on this (which they should not).


    I did as you said tried it with “seller id” in the merchant ID field and nothing happened. I have the google checkout enabled, payments enabled and have set up a price in order to register a business. When I complete the register form it then tells me that my listing will run for a certain amount of days and it will cost a certain amount. When I hit continue it just automatically submits the listing without showing the google checkout module, or without any type of payment.

    OK, that’s a bug. We’ll fix that. Stay tuned.

    I also have the same problem with google checkout. It only asks me to enter merchant id though. But, when click on google checkout button I get this error: Oops!
    We were unable to process your request.

    And the link which contains the error message is:

    Hi buddies,

    What version of BD are you running? We fixed this issue in

    Are you running in test mode or regular mode when the error happens?

    Can you post a screenshot of the specific error? Use to post it here as a link.

    Thanks for your prompt response! But, I don’t think I want to use Google Checkout anyway. It seems so complicated to use. I rather use Paypal instead. So, if I purchase a paypal module from you will I have the same problem like google checkout?

    No, they are completely different payment gateways. IMO, PayPal is easier to use and much more acceptable to end users.
