Setting up Google Checkout with SmartCart

SmartCart is proud to announce the full Level 2 Integration of Google's payment solution using Google Checkout. With Google Checkout, merchants can:
Google Checkout

  • Attract more leads. Buyers that use Google Checkout actively look to buy from merchants that offer it on their websites. If you use Google search advertising, you can help these potential buyers find you by displaying the Google Checkout badge on your search advertisements.
  • Convert more leads into sales. A fast, secure checkout process helps persuade shoppers to buy on your site and buy more often.
  • Lower sales processing costs. For every $1 you spend on Google search advertising, you can process $10 in sales for free. If you don't use Google search advertising or you use up your free transaction processing, you can process additional sales at a low 2% and $0.20 per transaction.
  • Protect yourself from fraud. Google Checkout's fraud prevention tools stop invalid orders from reaching you. And Checkout's Payment Guarantee policy helps protect you from chargebacks.
