How Do I Use Google Checkout?

One of the great features of your MiiDuu store is the ability to allow customers checkout through Google Checkout. This is a popular shopping cart system, so it will be very easy and convenient for your customers to use.

If you do not already have a Google Checkout account, you will first want to set one of those up. You can do so by going to checkout.google.com and clicking on the blue Sign Up button in the lower right corner. You will be asked to fill out some information about your company, and once you complete the checkout processes, you will be given a Merchant ID and Merchant Key. Once you have this information, go into your MiiDuu account and select Payments under the System tab. Then click on Edit in the Google Checkout column and enter your Merchant ID and Merchant Key. Make sure to select Enabled from the Status drop down box.

Once this is set up, you will be able to start selling in Google! Some important things to remember about Google Checkout: 1) Your customers will not be required to login to your site, and the Google Checkout option will only show up in the shopping cart. 2) The entire checkout process takes place within Google, not your MiiDuu store. 3) Your payment and shipping methods are NOT linked to your Google Checkout account, so you will need to set up your Google Account separately.

Paypal Common Issues

1. Why my customers are not directed to Paypal to finish the payment?

URL forwarding and Frame for your own domain are not allowed by Paypal, which is regarded as insecure. You may need to set your own domain via standard steps.

2. My paypal orders don't show up

PayPal sometimes experiences delays in their IPN (Instant Payment Notification) service which is the mechanism used to tell Miiduu about completed orders. Delays can range from a few minutes to several hours. If the orders still don't show up, you should deliver products based the payment record in your Paypal account. You may find your missing orders under menu: Sales->Order->Missing order.

IPNs are only part of the Website Payments Standard package. Website Payments Pro does not have this issue and all orders should show up immediately.

3. Currency Issue

If your default currency is not USD (as default currency in Paypal), you need to confirm that your currency is accepted by Paypal. What's more, make sure the currency code in your dashboard (System->Localisation->Code) is in accord with Paypal.

4.This transaction cannot be processed due to an invalid merchant configuration.

Please complete the following checklist:

1) Make sure you've signed up with PayPal for PayPal Website Payments Pro. This is a services provided on top of the standard PayPal package and costs approximately 30$ USD a month.

2) Make sure that you have accepted the "PayPal Payments Pro" agreement in your PayPal account after you have been approved by PayPal for PayPal Payments Pro.

If still got the same error then:

3)Logged into PayPal account. Went to “Profile” then "My selling tools” then "API access”, "View API Signature”. Removed the API Signature and recreated it. Back to your miiduu account and input new API informations.

5.The seller accepts encrypted website payments only. You cannot pay the seller through un-encrypted buttons. Please contact your seller for more details.
