Google Checkout Blog

An API for the rest of us

Friday, November 17, 2006

Since we launched, we've gotten a lot of feedback that you wanted an easier way to offer Google Checkout on your website -- without needing to be a coding wizard.

We've just launched a new option for integrating with Checkout: an HTML API. Just send us a shopping cart via an HTML form with name=value pairs, and manage the orders using our Merchant Center interface. You can easily specify shipping options and sales tax options in the shopping cart as well.

For more information on using the HTML API, there's a new Developer's Guide. And don't forget, you can still use Buy Now Buttons or email invoices to offer Google Checkout easily.
