Ed Note: This is the second in a series of posts from the Checkout team about features that will make running your business on Google Checkout even easier.

We're happy to share two new ways to easily add Google Checkout as a payment option for items on your Google Sites pages. To add the button right from your Sites page, look for the Google Checkout "Buy Now" Button Gadget in the Google Sites list of featured gadgets. Then setup your gadget with the item details and display settings in just a few clicks.

To learn more about how to add the gadget to your Sites pages through Google Sites, please visit the step-by-step instructional article.

Alternatively, you can also generate the "Buy Now" Button in your Merchant Center and copy and paste the generated button's code snippet into your Google Sites page HTML code. Just click the HTML button while in your Google Sites edit page mode and Sites will automatically embed the button in a gadget for you.
