View Full Version : Google Checkout and shipping
I recently set up a Google Checkout account and added it as a gateway to WHMCS with minimal difficulties.
This may be a Google issue, but Google insists on including shipping information on the order confirmation email that is sent to the customer. Has anyone had experience with this and know how to make a "services only" transaction so shipping is not an option?
Thank you in advance..
Just came across the same issue. Did you ever get a resolution?
If I find something, I will post here.
I would be interested to hear if anyone has a decent resolution to this matter as I've forever having to login and click shipped & archive.
Right from Google, ya sorry I took the easy way..... URL http://code.google.com/apis/checkout/developer/Google_Checkout_Shopping_Cart_Annotating_Shipping_ Information.html#Digital_delivery
Make it Digital delivery!
Unlike physical goods, digital goods do not need to be shipped (or picked up in a store). If you will email your customer with instructions for accessing digital items, then you need to identify the items on your site that are digital goods. To identify a digital item, add the product-digital CSS class to any HTML tag for that item as demonstrated in the example below.
<img class="product-image" src="beethoven_cd.jpg">
<span class="product-title product-digital">Moonlight Sonata</span>
Price: <span class="product-price">9.99</span>
<div role="button" alt="Add to cart" tabindex="0" class="googlecart-add-button">
If all of the items in an order are digital goods, then Google Checkout will not display shipping options for the items. In addition, you can not use carrier-calculated shipping methods for orders that contain digital items.
Where would this get added?
*bump* anyone got this working?
why does WHMCS not already identify it's self as digital goods?
Hi rwvpn, because not everyone uses WHMCS for virtual non-tangible sales.

I'd really like to see this happen. It looks like there's an API call to tell Google that it's a digital delivery. Seems that WHMCS would just need to have an option, either on the product or the payment gateway setup...
The CSS options posted above don't work as the push to Google is through XML. That's for when you're writing your own checkout system.
