    I started a little online store for a friend who sells Vermont maple syrup. Since it seemed hard to use my PayPal biz account with another store, I made a Google checkout account.

    I just got my first order and was looking at the dashboard. Looks like you have to push a "send shipping notice" button before you can push the button that charges their card.

    I understand that, most people don't know that legally your suppose to ship the item before you actually charge the CC. You can see if the money is there, but you can't complete the sale until it's shipped.

    So what happens when I push that button? Will it ask for a tracking number? My friend is using USPS priority boxes, not sure if they come with a tracking number.

    Anyone here run an online biz and use Google Checkout? If so got any advice for me? hmm

    Thanks! smile

    Never mind, I figured it out myself. Google checkout seems pretty good to use if you need a merchant account. smile

    I use it through e-junkie and don't have to push any buttons.  The money just shows up.

    What I do not like is that I don't get a net amount message - the email shows the full amount without fees. I don't know the net until I see it in the bank.

    Thank you both. Yeah it seems nice to work with. The shopping cart from them works pretty good.

    Only downside I can see is a customer has to make a account with Google. But seems like all make you create an account anyway.
